Default Upside down pictures!!!

Why are all of the pictures that I want to post coming out upside down? Have tried different ways to correct, but can't seem to. Some explanation or help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

This happened to me on Iphones with IOS 4 or bigger. You have to make sure you have the volume buttons facing down when you take the pic. Makes no sense, but all Iphones are like that now.


Heres a post on Apple about it. Looks like IOS 3.1.3 was the change. I missed it by that much!

NP! That vexed me forever. Finally figured out when the Powder puff took pix it was OK, when I did it it was broken. I asked her what the difference was

You could almost hear her eyes roll when I pointed the buttons up, camera style. I don't know why they did that though. Still makes no sense. And I still do it wrong sometimes because taking pics left handed with my thumb is uncomfortable in some situations while I'm holding parts and trying to show what's going on. Lemme know how it goes.

Its a pain in the rear. First the I pads then the phones and tablets. This is the only place that does it. Half my Facebook pics would be sideways or up side down. But it works every place but here.

If you look at the info hiden on your photos, it will show an "Orientation: 0*" that tell some programs or website which way your camera was when you took the photo, so say you held it up the tall direction, then Orientation would show 90* or 180*. if you change your photo on your computer so that you can see it the way you took it, the program reads that info and turns it anyway 90* so now its wrong. not all site do this yet but I'll bet its coming. I had this problem with facebook but only with the photos I take with my phone, my camera still needs to be turned manuelly before posting.

Question Re: Upside down pictures!!!

Watched the video on how to insert IMG text/content and TinyPic has been discontinued; likely bought out by Photobucket (users are re-directed to Photobucket).

Photobucket wants me to pay a subscription to host. Found a work-around but it appears the photos I wish to post will have an ugly watermark over the images.

I read this string about upside down images, which is what happens to me when I try to upload images directly from my PC.

Question:
Is everyone paying a monthly/yearly hosting fee to an online photo hosting vendor -- *or* -- is everyone turning their iPhone upside down to snap pics (as was suggested in this thread)??

Any help appreciated - thanks!

I do not pay for hosting. Whatever photos I take on my iPhone that need correcting/rotating, I correct it before I post from my desktop.

I use this website; to upload images that do not require another click to enlarge. This I learned from FetchMeaPepsi and he has a tutorial here in the help section.
