    Regarding the rotation, all of the photos appeared correctly (in my preview) when I shared them.

    Unfortunately, not every piece of software obeys this Exif tag. Some programs–especially older image programs–will just load the image and ignore the Exif Orientation tag, displaying the image in its original, unrotated state. Newer programs that obey Exif tags will show the image with its correct rotation, so an image may appear to have different rotations in different applications.

    Rotating the image doesn’t exactly help, either. Change it in an old application that doesn’t understand the Orientation tag and the application will move the actual pixels around in the image, giving it a new rotation. It’ll look correct in older applications. Open that image in a new application that obeys the Orientation tag and the application will obey the Orientation tag and flip the already rotated image around, so it’ll look wrong in those new applications.

    Even in a new application that understands the Orientation tags, it’s often not quite clear whether rotating an image will move the actual pixels in the image or simply modify the Exif tags. Some applications offer an option that will ignore the Exif Orientation tag, allowing you to rotate them without the tags getting in the way.

    April 20th would be great! I'm going to a lecture about Aliens that day.

    I honestly thought people were taking their photos in portrait.

    This kind of thing happens often in my life its because I'm right especially in my belief in Aliens.

    Browsers generally don't use the image orientation data in the photo itself as this could "break" websites if images are turned round. Traditionally the way to do it is to optionally remove the orientation data from the EXIF and then manually rotate the image before uploading. Right now however, we are in a transition period where some browsers respect image orientation (if specified in the css) and others don't !

    Short of removing the EXIF orientation data or setting css to not rotate and rotating the images manually, I don't know what we can do if we continue to display the images from dropbox as is currently done.

    Its a shame, and something I will try to look into before the next Day in the Life.
