Image inversion on loading to HH forum

Post by Bluesky » Sun Dec 11, 2016 9:20 pm

I am currently trying to upload 2 Images onto HHf. The images were taken consecutively on an iPhone, emailed back to my my email, reduced in size and downloaded onto my iPad. When uploaded to the forum and previewed one of the images becomes inverted. Thinking I would rotate the image 180 degrees before posting would rectify the problem it doesn't, the continues to invert on preview. Went back to square one and went through the whole download/upload sequence from IPhone onward. Same result, one image inverted! Any thoughts?

Suggest trying an alternative device such as a PC or laptop to upload.

The image in the OP was a strange one. I tried all sorts to get it to display on forum correctly, but it insisted on staying inverted. In the end I loaded it into something else, took a screen shot, cropped it and uploaded it. Never seen an image like it.

Thanks Lev and Big Boy, and a good solution.
I have worked out why it has happened and how to fix. Apple IOS software writes the orientation into the tag which is part of the Exchangable Image File (EXIF) which forms part of the metadata stored within the image. This tag is acknowledged seamlessly with Apple and some other software but not all. Hence if the orientation data is not acknowledged during the uploading process the image remains inverted! I managed to remove the orientation data, once done I flipped the I age and had no problems uploading. I am happy to Post a thread on how to fix.(Some other digital image recording devices part from Apple also use this system.)
