Any advice how to edit pictures while or after uploading? Some of my pics like to rotate on their own, I wish I could preview and edit them before uploading. Thanks!

There are no editing features here, that has to be done with a separate program or app. You can always preview your photos though before you submit.

Hi Maria,

If you find a photo has uploaded and rotated the wrong way, just let one of us admins know. We have a tool that we can use to rotate them.

The reason this happens is that some cameras try to guess which way is "up" and add a flag to the image data so that Windows shows it the "right way up". The website doesn't use this, so the image is uploaded in the way the camera actually took it.

I use JPEG Lossless Rotator to check the true orientation of my photos and rotate them if necessary before uploading.

I use IPhotos on my Mac to load pictures and Preview to crop and adjust them. If that helps any...

Most of the images I add are from my digital camera but sometimes when I'm out and about I still use the phone.

I found that the images from my phone showed up every which way. I learned to save the image 4 times (north, south, east, and west Hilarious! ), upload all four, then delete the three that were oriented wrong. That was the hard way. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Asking an admin for help is a lot easier. Thumbs up

I have a new, smarter phone, this does not happen anymore. Hurray!

Greene, what a smart way you invented!!!! I might use it too because the pics on my computer are always fine and just some of them don't upload well. But admin did a great job even without me asking, thank you guys!!!!! Thumbs up

Thanks, necessity is the mother of invention.
I had to get creative because my friend David Wolfowitz visited.
I gave him plants, answered a bunch of plant questions and he took photos. When he arrived home he sent photos; they were the wonky kind from his phone. Every time I tried to load the photo I was standing on my head. Rolling on the floor laughing Finally got it the right way...There are not many images of me anywhere in the universe; this is a very rare photo indeed.

You're welcome greene. I assume that when you said, 'I am not worthy', you meant it in the sense of Wayne's World. Otherwise I'd ask you to toss that acorn back. 🌝
