    The problem when uploading pics from phones is the phone image files contain a code indicating the orientation. The vBulletin software used by HVAC-Talk doesn't recognize this code so for lack of any other instructions it will always post in landscape to save "whitespace".

    When you do a minor crop to an image, it apparently changes the code to a width x height in the image file to one vBulletin understands, so then it will display it in the orientation you cropped it in.

    Take the photo in landscape, i.e. phone sideways. When you upload it select “preview post” before posting. If the photo is still sideways copy it, rotate to correct direction and upload it again.

    Or make a screenshot of the image, it doesn't seem to affect that.

    From my phone, I send pics to my desktop via email, rotate it, then up load to 'Mange Attachments'.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.
