Somebody please, flip these pancakes for me. I don't understand, why the pictures are upside down. Also took me 4 tries to upload them and for whatever reason now I double posted, weird.

>>don't understand

sigh. a condition very common among Windows users.
why?
because, Uncle Bill and Company has the system software automatically "flip and/or rotate" pictures so they appear in the proper orientation on _your_ computer screen.

it's not perfect, but it does work rather a lot of the time.
and fools tens of millions of people . . .

when you upload the .jpg/whatever file, it actually has not been "modified" to display the same (fake way) as on your screen - and "the rest of the non-Uncle Bill" software world displays it "as is"

try using (the free and veddy veddy good) Irfanview program - you can edit/modify/flip/rotate etc - just be sure to use the Save option so the file on disk is really what is displayed....

so I copied it, rotated, saved, looks like

Thank you dcSaute. I would have made the same IrfanView suggestion, but I was too lazy.

Thank you dcSaute and Taxlady, the pictures were on my phone. I downloaded the InfanView. When I went to open the file/picture the inFaview tells me there no items in the folder. Do I need to download pictures on my PC first?

if the pix are only on the phone, yes - you must put them on the pc.

not investigated, but methinks Irfanview is not available as an "app" for smartphones.

once 'transferred / copied' to the pc, you'll need to point Irfanview to the 'folder' where the pix reside.

if you use the "Save in original folder option" it will overwrite the original picture unless you give it another name.

personally, I never never overwrite my "originals"

I am sorry for being totally of topic here.
Ok, so I saved it on my PC, opened it in the IrfanView, and the pictures are perfectly perfect. I mean they are positioned/turned the right way. Now what?
