Here is an example of mine:

Also they arent all upside down, some are sideways and some are right side up.

When i rotate them in apple photos before posting them, discourse re-rotates them to make them sideways again

Hello,

This was a known issue that has now been fixed regarding IOS 15. Staff need to ask Discourse to update IFC.

Time to pull out the old Iphone 4 for IFC i guess

In the meantime, there is a workaround for this:

  1. Rotate your photo 180° in the iOS Photos application.
  2. Close the app out.
  3. Rotate 180° again (will return the image to the rotation the photo was taken in).
  4. Upload.

Sounds crazy, I know, but it’s the only workaround I’ve been able to find. I attached a quick video as a tutorial.

A black screen in the video will appear to block my Camera Roll content. That is its sole purpose; I am not excluding steps.

It’s good to have a resident Discourse pro on the IFC :)

We’ve updated the forum now, so hopefully this should be fixed
