About using photos taken with your phone...

iphones and Androids and whatnot are very popular for taking photos, which many of you want to share here...and that's a good thing, many of us love to see them. However, most photos taken with a phone are taken holding the phone sideways...so. when the photo is uploaded here, it appears sideways. To correct this, it would be advisable to upload the photo to your computer, then turn the photo sideways with the picture viewer you use...then upload the photo here. If the photo appears upright on your computer, but sideways here, then you still need to turn the photo before posting it to appear here properly. You can use 'edit' here to replace the first photo. Hope that helps some...

Appreciate the advice. Fortunately, my photos don't appear that way. Whenever I take a photo using the phone, I position it in a similar way I would take a photo with a real camera. I learned it from a relative who's a professional photographer.

Mine will look sideways on the computer, but if I take it with my iPhone, it will be straight up and down. I find that once I crop the pirture, it will end up being smaller, and it will appear on here like it should. I find it easier to post a picture using my iPhone than using my laptop. Thank you though for expalining how to do it, as I was totally confused as to what to do when that happens. I usually take the picture in portrait mode, though, more than the landscape mode.

Phew! I had that experience one or twice and when I realized it was side ways, I change it right away. Some people out there are just contented uploading photos regardless on what positioned it was when uploaded. yeah, it does help thanks @JolietJake
