My photos keep rotating when I upload off my phone.

See if this one works for ya.

I’ve suggested that we have a rotate feature on the forum for mobile device photos.

I rotated it on my pc. You try rotating it on your phone so it’s the wrong way and upload it.

I tried rotating it on my phone and it still came out wrong.

It’s possible to detect the image orientation with scripts before users upload them but I don’t think Greg is using them. I know from experience that images still seem to come out wrong from time to time. Maybe if enough users ask for a rotation tool Greg will put one in. Until then the only thing I can suggest is to send the image to yourself in an email and then rotate it there before uploading it.
