Title: Can I change the orientation on my profile pic?
Post by: Melissa K on June 04, 2014, 03:39 PM
I've tried uploading a series of profile pictures today, and they all show up oriented sideways or upside down. Can anybody tell me how to fix this?

Where were you loading them from? Your computer, or Picasa, or...?

I don't know if you can change the orientation on this board, but you can change it before you upload. These days, some cameras/photo viewing programs will auto-detect which way is up (facial recognition, etc.) and show you the photos the way they're meant to look...however, they are technically still sideways. Try rotating and then saving your photo before uploading it and see if that works.

Fiddled around with different programs and got it to work--thanks!
