Portrait pictures get rotated?

http://www.housecarers.com/photo_view2.cfm?mem=2145674015&slide=6

Please how do I Prevent this? - display without rotation. I just want the picture to display as is.

When I look at the original it is OK see below - it is portrait - see here:

ALT="House Sitters Pictures from YouthfulRetiree">

it has to do with the meta data in the image which was put there by the camera it was taken with. If you only have a few images the easiest way to 'fix' it is to open the images in phoshop and resave.

if these are client images and you have no control over them, you can manipulate the rotation server side.

as far as i remember there is no way to have html5 ignore the rotation, but u could be wrong.

You might be able to fix it with a CSS transform. Try changing the CSS for the images to include:

-webkit-transform:rotate(90deg); 
transform:rotate(90deg);

Open in new window


If it does not work when applied directly to the images, you can try rotating the container for the images instead.

They are client posted images dynamically loaded.  So the logic would apply to thousands of pictures, loaded by clients  for the same page .

I am not sure why the meta data of the image would cause it to flip unnaturally? so the picture cant be seen as taken?

I thought maybe it was the css for the page?  Maybe it couldnt fit so it rotated? Not an expert on CSS

So this is an example of the same page where the image is ok - for another client

you will need a server solution. the reason only some images appear flipped is becuase the cameras are different. this is meta data set by the camera - nothing to do with CSS.

i could give you a php solution, but it looks like you are using cold fusion, so that would probably be no use to you.

while you can do rotation client side, you would need to wait until the image is loaded to get the exif_data to determine whether to rotate or not. imo, lots of unnecessary work that's better left to the server
