My photo flips when I upload it

I’m not sure why my photo flips upside down or sideways when I upload it but i’m Not sure how to change it. I tried 2 different photos too.

Most likely your photo has

Most likely your photo has the camera orientation stored in the EXIF metadata and the software you are using on your computer to display the image is reading that data and rotating the image accordingly. You can probably solve this by stripping the EXIF data or opening and saving the photo in an image editor.

If you're still having problems it's probably best to use the 'Contact Us' form as official help on the forums is next to non existent.

Upside down photo

On Warmshowers, one must resize photos before posting or it will be too large for the screen or flip at times.  Don't know why.  It's worth a try to resize your photo and see if that works.  A free resizer is available here ( )  I've been using it for years and it's a safe download for phones and computers.  If that doesn't work, I also recommend contacting the site.  Good Luck.  Jack Day
