What devices are you people using that you have difficulty with photo orientation?
I find when I am creating a post I can use 'preview' to see how it will come out. If it looks wrong I decide which way it needs to rotate, delete the attachment, rotate the original file on my machine, re-attach then preview again and only post when it looks correct. Are there some devices where this rotation step is difficult? I am suspecting the spawn of the devil that starts with 'i' but that might just be my bias.

i? Probably. But mobile devices in general are difficult.

Upside down seems to happen to me all the time when emailing photos taken on my iPhone. . It would probably be easier if i practiced taking them standing upside down on my head - then they might come out the right way up!

Im so sorry Geoff but on my phone they look perfectly normal to me, even under preview, therefore myself or my iphone are not at fault, so therefore cannot change, you all get the general gist, therefore thats all that matters in this world of more important things to worry about, hope you have a nice day.

I don't have a smartphone so I didn't realise it was difficult like Stephen says, apologies if my post looked personally critical. Perhaps somebody could post tips for iOS and Android devices?

On my little compact camera they turn out fine Geoff, but on the iphone it's perfect to view but Mr Apple mucks around somehow & decides for itself which way is up! Absolutely right though Geoff - maybe some hints & tips would be useful.

I suspect you haven't applied for planning permission to run an on-site catering function but i'm sure Pa operates on the assumption that it is better to ask for forgiveness than to seek permission !

I can smell that bacon from here and it's delicious!

I have no special knowlege on posting pictures but it appears never to be a problem fron a proper computer.
Phone handsets are miraculous in their way but limited. In my view great for consuming but poor for creating content (I'm on an Android handset at the moment; there's an irony there).
I'll post a landscape picture, then a portrait one.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet
