My Profile Photo Appears Sideways

Soooooo.... I uploaded a more recent photo

 

It previewed in the correct orientation

 

When I saved it

 

It saved sideways

 

Retried multiple times

 

No Luck

 

Any Advice Would Be Greatly Appreciated

Look everybody.  It has been over a week and mcstrudel still hasn't fixed it.  Thank him for the jerk around.

Download and use the Windows 7 rotated image.

Not Having Win10 Issues - when I try to post on AARP it shows up in the correct orientation in the AARP preview but when I look at it on a post - it's sideways - I guess I'll try shrinking the sixe but do not yet know how - thanks

@mickstuder 

 

Probably the size of picture you’re trying to use like, @cat0w  suggested.

 

Use any of the photo editing software to shrink your picture size down.

 

On my phone it offers a resize option for smaller sizes.

 

On my laptop I have similar options in edit, or paint.net for truly easy shrinking, Re-sizing.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

What is the size of your photo? Mine is 800 x 800.  My photo is jpeg.

 

I did write a reply to a post the other day with photos in it, one turned sideways like yours and I could never find a way to change it. Using snip & sketch I cut out what I wanted to post, made another reply and it showed as it should. Look at this topic. https://community.aarp.org/t5/Housing/Do-You-Have-Outdoor-Space/m-p/2331633#M161

Looks like PEBKAC might be the culprit.

 

🤔



It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.
