Why do some of my photos upload sideways and how do I correct that? I see no way on this board to rotate them and they are correctly rotated in my personal library. Thanks.

This is a 'gift' of the board's software. If you upload your photos to Postimages — free image hosting / image upload, click/tap 'hotlink for forums' (this will copy the link to your clipboard), and paste in your post, you will see your image like this

Good grief! Y’all can just turn your heads sideways. Thanks for the instructions though.

It's really easy once you do it a time or two. My neck doesn't turn so it real difficult for me. The phone autorotates and that makes it worse.

That's my technique also. It takes only 10 seconds per photo.

To save server space for the website, whether right or wrong, I always reduce the size of my posted photos to a greatest dimension of 900 pix and reduce image quality to the range used for online web posts.

I use 24" monitors with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pix.
900 pixel images fit the website's post on my monitors and is big enough to seen the image's contents.
I use cameras that produces 24 mp (6,016 x 4,016 pix) images and my el cheapo that only produces 16 mp (4608 x 3456 pix).
Both produce images that are too big for the website's display.
The website has to reduce them to display them.
Then, I reduce the online image's size quality to less than 200mb, usually 100mb or less.

When uploaded to a post, the 900 pix full frame (2x3) images upload as oriented.
When the full sized photos are uploaded, the longer dimension, is rotated to an upright position, often turning them sideways.

As a note, the main advantage of uploading photos directly to the forum, sideways or not, is that these are stored on the forum server, and will always be accessible.

For linked photos, if the link to the original location breaks (photo removed or moved to another folder, host website disappears...) then the photos also disappear from the forum.

Just go in your photo library and choose the photo you want to upload. Go into edit and rotate the photo 90 degrees, save, then rotate it back and save. Then upload it the same way you have in the past into your thread and it will be right side up.
