Ipad image handling, portrait images changed to landscape.

  1. Regardless of what I do images taken with the ipad in portrait and posted on a form that I subscribe to are turned on their side and presented in landscape. Forum admin can correct this but apparently it is because Apple portable devices see the longer dimension as being horizontal and treat it as such.
    Does anyone know a workaround so that posted images are presented correctly.

    I load images into Xnview on the PC, set the orientation and save then upload. They appear the right way round on the forum.

    How about rotating it to landscape on your iPad with the edit tool before posting it, it should then come out as portrait.

    Use an android device :p

    afaik that still won't work because the software looks at the size and decides what is best for you as you can't be trusted to make up your own mind...

    Why is it such a faff with i-devices then?

    Going through an intermediary PC step seems counterintuitive and unnecessary when (on droid) I can do a cup of tea in portrait:

    or in landscape:

    simply by turning my phone (after doing Upload a File -> Camera).

    There must be an app that allows sensible functionality?

    I read of this problem somewhere else and someone said that if they crop their images on the iphone after taking them the problem does not occur. It is said that if you hold the ipad or iphone the right way up to take the picture it will come out the right way up when you send it.
