Weird: When opened in a new tab the pics are rotated and shown in the correct orientation, at least on my computer ...
I still think:
Apple is to blame, I'm guessing.
but perhaps the post to which I linked did not explain the issue clearly.
Naa, Samsung A40. No fruits involved here ;-)
Some of the photos posted here are not in the right orientation, some are and with some (ink blobs) it would not matter. On my phone all photos are in correct orientation as well as on my laptop, it is only when I upload them here and in the German Penexchange forum when I notice which ones are rotated to the left.
If you aren't using an Apple computer, I'd be very curious to know which browser on which operating system you're using that is also exhibiting the problem.
The image files contain metadata specifying the correct orientation. Browsers based on WebKit on OS_X (i.e. Safari and Chrome on a Mac) fail to respect that item of metadata to present embedded images on Web pages accordingly. However, when viewed as just an image on its own, e.g. in a new browser tab (with the resource type in the URL being a JPEG file and not an HTML file), or outside the browser in an application such as Preview, the metadata content is observed and the images are presented correctly.
It's not like Apple can't do the right thing, either; Safari and Chrome browsers on iOS (e.g. my iPad) will respect the orientation specified, even when the images are embedded on web pages instead of being viewed as standalone images.
As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
