Uploading Sideways

I have had a few issues with blogger before with pictures but they usually straighten themselves out. However, this time, things fell flat.

For some reason or another, I recently tried to upload my first mail day from Auction Ink to my blog to show off and even though the picture was straight on my desktop, it wanted to stay sideways on the upload.


And yes I am pretty old fashioned taking pictures on my phone, editing them there, emailing them to myself, downloading them to my desktop,  using an older desktop to host the pictures then upload them to here. I have never once used a scanner despite taking a class back in high school on how to.

I uploaded three different times. No, I don't have three of these cards just one. I tried it three different ways but for some reason or another the picture wouldn't straighten out. So here is another card knocked off the want list. You can either turn sideways or flip your phones in the right direction to see it.

1983 Donruss Ryne Sanberg rookie card if you can't.




I hope this doesn't happen again or I may have to find a new way to upload pictures on here. As it is already, I don't have the blogger app with my "new to me" phone so I can't edit the photos directly.

A big thanks goes out to Auction Ink for the want list help. If you haven't yet, check them out HERE.

How do you bloggers upload your photos? Scan? My way? Another way? Let me know in comments!

  1. I've had this happen to me before and I still don't know why. However, if I open up Windows Explorer and find the file, then right click and rotate it all the way around (360 degrees) it straightens back up the next time I upload the file to Blogger. Again, I don't know why this happens or how that fixes the problem, I just know that it's corrected the issue for me in the past. I hope this helps!

    1. I tried that and it kept uploading it sideways. It's the oddest thing

  2. I use a scanner and my regular laptop computer so I haven't had this problem. I think most of the cause of this phenomenon is due to some weird unwritten smartphone voodoo coding that is part of smartphone nature. Like videos being the tiny center third of the screen. Hmm I wonder. I have a couple of ideas for you to try. The first is to download the pictures to your desktop unedited, uncorrected and then edit and fix them on the desktop then upload them. The other thing to try is once they have been loaded to your desktop (either edited on phone, or unedited) change the file name for the picture make sure that picture looks right and then upload that second picture.

    1. thanks for the ideas I will have to give them a try. I also figured out that I can't copy and paste a YouTube video into the video section on here to try and play it in a post like others I have seen can. Not sure what's up with my blogger lol.

  3. I hope this wasn't your payment for sponsoring their site, although after seeing that site, I guess I wouldn't be too surprised if it was :)

  4. I scan them and use Fotor photo editor to mess with sizing.
