Important info on taking pictures to use on this site.

Most people today are using their cell phones to take pictures. It is important to know that this site does not automatically turn the pictures the correct orientation. It will always put them in landscape position. So any pictures you take with the phone standing up, will show on here with them laying down. I'm not sure if all phones do this, but I know my Samsung does. Always take the picture or video with the phone laying sideways, or landscape.


This was taken portrait, or phone standing up.

This used to happen to me a lot. My fix (for pics already taken) was to crop them so they're just a bit wider than they are tall, like the 4:3 format.

Now I take all pics using the 4:3 format. Seems to be more user friendly with posting.

Lol, probably best to disregard anything I say. I'll just add that I too use a Samsung. It's an S7 edge.

Same pic but cropped at both the top and bottom. No other alterations or attempts to flip. Just a crop.

I have the regular S7 not the edge. I have found that even rotating the pictures on a PC still results in the pictures sitting wrong if they were taken from my Samsung S7 phone. The Samsung embeds some format that's still readable even though you modify the picture. The only time I have been able to rotate pictures on his forum is through the gallery. Laying the phone sideways has been the only way I could find to make it work correctly on a Samsung device.

So what size did it end up after cropping

It seems when you crop the picture it changes the format and makes it work.

I didn't crop it to any specific ratio. All I did was a cropshop on the top and bottom until the pic "looked" wider than it's height.

It looks like if you crop it at all it saves it and allows it to show correctly. I just cropped a little bit off the top of that picture and it worked

Interesting. That's good to know since sometimes a more narrow vertical pic is wanted and needed.

Not sure if iPhones have this issue. Have you had any problems?
