Uploaded photo displays upside down


#1

I just uploaded a photo. If I hover over the link, the photo displays upside down. It’s also upside down if I set images to be displayed inline. However, if I click on the link, the photo is displayed the right way up in a new browser tab.

How can I make it display correctly when I hover over the link?

OK, I have worked out what is happening. There is an ‘orientation’ attribute in the photo’s EXIF data which indicates the camera (or phone) orientation, where 1 is ‘normal’. The values are:
1 = ^
3 = v
6 = <
8 = >
Most browsers and programs read this and automatically rotate the photo. Obviously Dynalist does not. I will add this as a feature request. In the meantime, I guess I will need to manually rotate the photos before I upload them.

why do you hold your phone upside down to take pictures

I don’t hold my phone upside down.

It was a landscape picture that was upside down from the expected orientation.

The orientation displays incorrectly for anything other than the upright portrait position.
