Old guy needs help. Would like to upload some photos from those I’ve taken on my phone for replies to threads. Each time I’ve tried, the photo winds up 90 degrees left. Is there a quick fix? Thanks for any help.

There's nothing on GatorChatter , you must rotate before uploading the picture. What do you have an Iphone or an Android?

Technically, this is two problems. The first is your download issue...I got nuthin.

The second is the orientation of the images...stop taking phone-photos with your phone straight up and down and instead turn your phone sideways to take a photo.

A. Go to photos on your phone and like the one you want to post.
B. Put cursor in post box or chat box line
C. Select upload a file beside the post reply blue box or choose file in chat box AFTER selecting the moon and mountain icon.
D. Select the liked photo again to upload a file, wait til done, select insert and post....leave size to default by itself
E. This is for iPads and iPhones or Apple

You are better on drugs... He needs to rotate his picture 90 degrees before posting.

I’ll be damned. That was with the “upload a file” then post full image option. All these years I have uploaded a pic to a file sharing site then posted that link.

way easier... thanks Goon

This might explain why I couldn’t see some of your photos in the Home Project thread.
