Editing pics

Is there a way to edit pics once you attach them to the thread? Sometimes my cell phone pics load sideways and even upside down.(See the "for instance" below.) Is there a way to right them before posting (when I pull them from my photos they are situated correctly. If not, is there a way that feature can be added so pics can be rotated into the proper perspective?

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Hey there,

You should see an "Edit" icon next to the "Quote" icon where you can click to edit the post. If the post is over the edit time limit, you can send it to us and we'll correct it for you.

With regards to the images, most pictures these days come straight off our phones. The phones software embeds some coding in to each image when it is taken. This code tells the phone which way is 'up' and displays it correctly for you. Unfortunately, that coding cannot be read by most forum software and so the pictures appear whichever way they were taken with the phone.

There are some tips to get the 'correct' orientation for your photos on your phone.
Android users take photos with the HOME button to the RIGHT.
Apple users take photos with the VOLUME button DOWN.

This is the 'correct' orientation for pictures on your phone. The developers base this off of a DSLR camera that takes photos in landscape mode as a default. So when you take a picture with your phone in portrait view, it's like turning the DSLR camera to the side to take a portrait photo.

You can also open your pictures in an editor on your computer and manually rotate them. If you use an editor on your phone, you may need to crop off a couple pixels, or save a new name so that a change is registered.

You can also use photo hosts like Imgur etc, that have the software needed to read the coding on the images from the phones.
