Well, if this does not count as miscellaneous, I really don't know... but, given, this absolutely is not crafting - or is it?
I see a lot of people on craftster, trying to show their photos in their right orientation, but ending up with distorted or sideway pics. So I'll show you a quick and easy way how to get rid of this.Some theory to start with:
(you can skip this, if you like)
How come something is rotating the pics in the start? Well, a lot of cameras do have an absolute position transducer (thingamabob that knows up and down from each other) these days, so they KNOW how you held the camera while taking the pic. And according to the transducer the pic gets marked as "portrait" or "landscape".
But, well, people being people, we take a lot of "landscape" photos which are originally "portrait" (and vice versa) - but landscape fit better at the moment. Or think of photos made from drawings - most of them are shot vertically, drawing laying on top of a desk, camera held over it. The transducer can't mark those.
So there is another algorithm used to find out which orientation a photo may have, and it's deduced from the main orientation of "lines" in your pic and the vanishing point taken into account and the fact people are mostly between 1 and 2 m high and hold the camera in front of their eyes and whatnot. (People's portraits is another thing alltogether, they look for faces).
Now when you open your pics in a graphics program the program tries to read the tag (portrait/landscape) or deduce the orientation from these lines and rotate your pic accordingly. Some progs will ask you the first time they have to do and save this preference for all times. So you'll always see the photo in the mode it is tagged as - BUT THE FILE ITSELF DIDN'T GET ROTATED! It's just the VIEW of it. You have to save it!
If the displayed photo is "messed up" like in "drawing taken from above" you'll certainly always rotate it yourself and save it, but if you just look at them with a pic viewer, chances are you'll never save them back, cause you just do not know it's just the rotated VIEW, not the acutal ORIENTATION! And uploading them to the web is just a way of placing a file somewhere, there's no interpreting it by the web server except for the fact it's a pic and it has got certain dimensions.
Just open your photos in a graphics program like, say, Irfan view (Windows) -> http://www.irfanview.de/, Shotwell (Linux) or whatever you Maccies have, and SAVE ALL OF THEM before uploading!
Do not change anything else unless you want to. Just rotate them and save. Whereever. And use the saved file for upload, don't save them to hard disk and upload from your original file on camera.
Yes, it's as easy as that. Open, save, done. And if you feel like it, you can shrink it. Only if you like to.
