Transition? Fall back on? No offense intended, but I have no intention to adopt the new skin. Ever. I hate to say it, but if it is crammed down my throat I'll just wander away, sadly.

You're welcome to keep using the old skin no one's forcing it on you in that respect.

I uploaded a picture of the C453 and posted it in one thread, but when I tried to upload it to a different thread, the board ate it up and did nothing with it.

I dragged, I dropped, but as soon as the "Upload Progress" bar reached 100%, the picture just disappeared. ???

I can't even screenshot it as it just goes back to blank like nothing happened.

For example: Now that I've uploaded these three Avatars to this thread, I won't be able to post them anywhere else on SCoA.
Give it a try again, I think we have a fix in.

If the images fail to load please PM them to me and I will have the team investigate further.

I have a problem with sideways photos.
Now surely I know some were taken landscape, some portrait on my phone. However my phone, windows and several other sites know which way is "UP"
Is there a way to rotate them here? If I rotate them on my graphics program then they are sideways on my PC and everywhere else too.

I suppose I could just make duplicates of the problem ones and have them in another folder.

Any ideas?

This happens because the forum software is unable to read the EXIF data that is imprinted on the photo when you take it.

The EXIF data holds a lot of information, which includes the orientation of your photo. Many programs are able to read this, and that is why you see it displayed upright in some places, but many others still are not.

This is a good article that explains all of this: https://www.howtogeek.com/254830/why...ectly-rotated/

The gist of it is, the phones are designed to work as a digital camera. Holding your digital camera flat, in landscape, is the 'base line'. Developers used this 'base line' in the following way for mobile devices:

Apple users: hold your phone with your VOLUME buttons DOWN.

Android users: hold your phone with your HOME button to the RIGHT.

It's completely against common sense since the volume button is used as a shutter button, so you would think the volume button should point UP! But that is how developers worked it out, so when you hold your phone upright, in portrait, it is the same as turning your digital camera 90 degrees to the side, to take a portrait photo. Since the forum cannot read the data that tells it which way you are holding your phone, it displays plainly from the 'base line' - whichever side your volume buttons are on will be the bottom of your photo (so if you take a photo with your volume buttons facing UP on your phone, the photo will display upside down when you upload it here).

There is not currently any plugins or hacks that we've come across that can allow the forum to read the EXIF data at this time.

The only way around it is, either hold your phones the way the developers decided you should, OR you can open the photos in an Editing program (not the viewer), and save them in the correct orientation (you might need to rename them, and crop off a pixel or two, to make sure a change is recognized).

Hope that helps!
