If you edit the photo (just crop it ever so slightly & save the change) then it posts correctly - initially I had the same problem and another member PM'd me with that advise, which resolved the issue for me.

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format, and stores a lot of data from your digital camera. Orientation of the original picture can be one of the data items contained, values 1 -8
1:0 degrees the correct orientation, no adjustment is required.
2:0 degrees, mirrored image has been flipped back-to-front.
3:180 degrees image is upside down.
4:180 degrees, mirrored image is upside down and flipped back-to-front.
5:90 degrees image is on its side.
6:90 degrees, mirrored image is on its side and flipped back-to-front.
7:270 degrees image is on its far side.
8:270 degrees, mirrored image is on its far side and flipped back-to-front.

The problem is caused by the software that handles the orientation, especially web browsers. There does not appear to be a standard. It can also very sight to sight, I believe this site removes the EXIF data when it gets posted as user ORV suggested. This is most likely for privacy reasons

I suspect that when you crop your photo, change size and save it removes or updates the orientation data , just rotating and saving probably does not. You can also save as a .PNG file as it technically does not use EXIF data, although there is software that will preserve the data. There are EXIF editors where you can just change the value. Or find the orientation that is that matches up with your Cell Phone Camera, this is most likely the easiest.

You're quicker than me Scotty! Lol

Thanks gentlemen. I will investigate my options. Flipping my iphone looks to be an easy fix. Gotta see how my seldom used camera reacts...
Two wheels or four, its all good. :-)

I've had great success with the volume button down method. Posted quite a few this summer and it worked for me.

Yes, if you take pictures with your camera in its true Lens up position, (this is easy on a digital camera, but not as intuitive on a phone) then your pictures should always be in the correct orientation. If you do a sideways shot, you will need to manually rotate the picture and save-as.

Sense the website strips the EXIF data, you see the picture exactly as it was taken in reference to the position of the lens. Your phone and other viewing software was uses the EXIF data to flip the picture to map it to the up position of the phone. They don't care witch lens position the picture was taken, they rotate accordingly.
