I'll have to work on that PJ. It gets frustrating when I try to post stuff and either they are sideways or too large for the format. Really, I need to take time and start to do this right the first time or maybe start my own page like Jbee. My biggest problem is that I get carried away when I'm out and forget to take pictures most of the time.

I do not understand why these pictures continue to post sideways when they are upright in the computer.
Yeah, thatís what I do. Load them into an editor and rotate them to what you want then save as a new file (I always keep the original, just in case).

My understanding is that the metadata, added automatically by the phone or camera (i.e. properties like the date) attached to the picture file tells the photo or web application which way up it should be; based on which way the camera took the picture (they know where they are, you see!). 


Knowing this, I have found that the way all sorts of programs and apps detect the orientation is variable and even though you think you might have rotated it (say in a phone app) it doesn't always override the inherent picture properties.


I agree with Duane, re-orientating and saving via a reputable photo program / app is the best way to ensure you get what you intend in the upload to the website. Most photo apps allow you to erase the properties but if they remain on their side i.e. in the original orientation, this won't solve the problem.


Trial and error is my best guide.
