We are seeing a lot of similar issues - do we know if this is specific to a particular device? I can ask all my members who have experienced it but if it is known issue and I can update them it would be easier.
Unfortunately we upload a lot of photos (images of wine labels) so it will happen a lot on our site
I can save and re-upload the image from my site (see below), but it is not MY image so relying on the user. I am quite sure it is correctly oriented for him so if the EXIF was stripped in HIS upload process, then I will not have it here.
I can see if I can get him to confirm and send me the original
I was sent the original image via email and when I upload it myself it is still incorrectly oriented but it shows correctly on his iphone and when I preview the image on my MacBook
This was taken on an iPhone 8 running iOS 11.1.1
It might be something about the iPhone defaulting to ‘live’ images and when you directly upload one of these to discourse it is possible that it is not reading it correctly
However, I have tested the same image on try.discourse and it was correctly oriented there, so I assume that the fixes in 1.9.0 will resolve this issue for my site … I just need to wait for it to go live
Horlogeforum is running with us. It’s on latest stable. In our experience this was fixed in 1.9 beta 5-or-something and later, so this should not be a problem anymore. We’ll investigate this and inform the staff.
