Maybe this will help Ipad users post photos right side up?

My3dogsJuly 29, 2013

I saw another post this AM with a photo upside down, and although I don't have an iPad, I Googled how to have them appear right side up, if anyone would like to experiment with this.

Link below with much more info, but the answer was - "The quick answer: The 'correct' way to take a photo is with the home button on the Right. For portrait photos the camera should be at the top."

"If you receive a photo and it is upside down then I recommend Fotosizer. A free program that not only flips your photos but re-sizes them as well."

Here is a link that might be useful: Why are my iPhone / iPad Photos Upside Down?

Thank you....I don't often take pics with my IPad but if I do, this will be helpful.

I also want to thank you. Im going to try.
It worked. So us lefties need to use the ipad like a right handed person when taking photos.

YAY! I'm so happy! When I see a sideways or upside down one that I really want to check out. I save it to my photos and flip it.

Seeing that sweet face just above is a great 'thank-you'!

Spread the word, Ladies!!

Thanks, this is very helpful to know. Ah, but will I remember?

I'm a rightie but because of how I fold my cover and prop it up, I always have my home button on the left.

Pretend it is a real camera. All the ones I have ever owned had the shutter button on the right side of the camera.

Chipa, the problem with the ipad is if you "flip" and the camera is in the bottom right hand corner,which is the "wrong" position, the "shutter button" "flips" to the right. So it doesn't matter where the camera eye is the shutter button is always on the right.

Bully, not what I meant ... pretend the shutter button is the iPad home button ... always keep that on your right for landscape and on the bottom for portrait.

M3D and Oly,
Did you see this thread about pictures?
problems with pictures

It seems I'm not the only one with picture issues. Any suggestions, besides not posting a picture, on what else to try? Adding the picture to something like photobucket and not posting directly from my iPad?

HH are you using an Ipad? Seems that's the problem for most, either viewing or posting. Good to have that thread linked here, too. I don't have an ipad and won't ever, so I'm not going to try to problem solve it, but just linking to what others have posted.

I guess I (who will also never have an iPad) would suggest to load them to Photobucket. That's a way to ensure that you post them right side up!

That info that I posted is all over the 'net, and I've linked it in another post that I just found, with the same advice. Not having the device, all I can do is read about it.

Just read this is one of the MANY links I found on the subject, where one user says -
'I use photoshop express to rotate them. This BUG is fixed in iOS 5.'

Hmmm, since the pictures are right side up on my ipad I would have to turn them upside down in photobucket I guess. Maybe I'll have to play with it a little in the test forum. I'm not being belligerent when I write I probably just won't post pictures. I hardly ever did anyway, I can't even remembered my photo bucket password! Oh well, I'll figure it out if I ever have a picture I just have to share.

In the thread about the Anderson door, both her pictures are right side up on my iPad. I think I'll check how they look on my laptop. Not that it matters, I don't have any advice for her, I'm just curious since I'm thinking about pictures.
