IPhone pics always upside down...

jane__nyMarch 5, 2013

IPhone is the only 'Apple' I use and use the camera often. Many times when I post a photo it is upside down. I have used Microsoft Picture Manager to rotate it properly, but when I post the photo it shows upside down.

On the Apple forum they blame Microsoft for not reading some tag. Whatever.....does anyone else run into this? I miss my Blackberry.

Thanks as always,

If your posted photos are always upside down, I have a guaranteed solution. The next time you're about to snap a photo that you'll want to post:

1) Prepare to take the photo and hold your phone the way you normally do

2) Pause for a moment and rotate the camera 180 degrees

3) Take the photo. You'll find when you post it, it's not upside down.

Thanks for the links Zep. I did check those and that's where they talk about tags which Windows doesn't read. The recommendation is to use Picassa which I don't know how to use to post photos here.

Snidely, I have tried that many times. It doesn't work. It seems the way the picture comes into the computer is 'willy-nilly.' Sometimes its correct, other times its sideways or upside-down. Even when I correct using MS Photo Editor, it doesn't correct the problem. The photo looks right on Photo Editior, but when I bring it into GW, it rotates again. Very weird, I've never had this happen before.

I'll have to learn Picassa.

Just wanted to say thanks for the info given. The only fix I could find was to use Picasa. I load the photos and they are automatically straightened. Then I 'save' to My Pic Folder and they are correct. Its a pain, but I agree, Apple needs to fix this.
