    Just curious, were the pictures taken with an iPhone and you uploaded images directly from the phone? I know this to be a problem with iPhones on vBulletin platforms as vB doesn't read/use/understand the embedded position information that comes with the image. We're running Xenforo software, so I'll be interested to hear the answers to this.

    With vB software, the only way is to offload the images from the phone and use one of a number of software programs to rotate the image one direction or the other and then upload the resaved image.

    As suggested, the orientation and current rotation are part of the image metadata. We have a facility to correct orientation but restrict its use to moderators because it is a bit unforgiving to use.

    If you click on the report link at the bottom of a post with images, it will notify the moderator with the message you provide. He will then repair the orientation for you.

    thanks for your replies, pics were taken with a normal camera, cut and compressed with a graphic software and saved in correct orientation.
    Next time I will save the pics turned right bevore uploading, may be that will compensate this effect.
    regards
