    So, pictures that you take portrait style will be upright, and pictures taken landscape style will come out sideways on the forums.
    Is that for pictures being posted from an iPhone?

    I've got pictures taken landscape:
    437756

    and portrait:
    437758

    that load here fine. But they are photos I've taken with my camera. I have them on my computer and oriented there correctly.

    The photos above are loaded directly from the iPhone. In the past, when I post from my phone and the pic is sideways I go home and edit it on my computer and reload the post. But, I don't think that would work for someone who loads a few pics from the iPhone.

    @WebmasterAlex / @WebmasterCorey ~ do you know if there is a fix or setting for uploading landscape pics from your iphone so they appear right-side on the boards?

    I had this issue uploading pictures from my iPhone. I was advised that when the boards went through the upgrade that compatibility between this software and iOS was lost.

    In order to have my photos appear correctly, I emailed the to myself and opened in a Windows-based laptop through Paint. I was instructed to not rotate the photo (it displays correctly when opened in Paint). I saved the file in .jpeg and was able to successly upload here.

    I do not know how to fix this for those who do not have access to Windows.

    It's doing the same thing from my Samsung phone so not just an iOS issue. Even when I've downloaded it to my computer it flips it back when I attempt to post the pictures on the boards.

    Thanks to @Chirple, this worked for me to fix the orientation problem of trip report photos from my iPhone.
