Default a different Cross for me

My wife had surgery so I have not been making things lately. However, she is doing great and healing well so today I was able to get back to making signs.

My customer has been most understanding and patient. Thanks to her!!!

Anybody know how to stop my phone from rotating pictures when I post them? It's not oriented like that in my phone. This is so frustrating.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Bill, I use a Galaxy S4. Gonna upgrade to a Galaxy 6 in 2 or 3 months.

Been down the "ITUNES BLACK HOLE" and found my way out. No more iPhones for me.....or any Apple products. It's not the Apples I dislike.....it's being tied to iTunes and how easily they can wreck a PC.....and how they could care less to offer help.

Hi Frank:
First, nice work on the cross - looks great.

To answer (or attempt to) your question re: orientation of photos

I suspect you took the picture in "vertical" or portrait mode, but when you posted it it went into horizontal, or landscape mode.
Not sure what phone you have but if this picture is still on your phone, you can open the picture up in your gallery, or something similar and look at the details. The orientation will tell you what mode it is in. On my Samsung Note 3, any picture in portrait mode is shown as being 90*, and any picture taken in landscape mode is shown as being 0*. Most phones are designed to shoot in landscape mode (think of your widescreen TV). However, most phones are also designed to rotate the picture for you when you view it on your phone, regardless of which orientation you hold the phone in.

Hope all that makes sense. So, not sure if you upload to a computer first, or post from your phone with the photo attached. One way around the issue is to edit the photo, crop it (using the same size as the original), then after saving it in the proper orientation, upload it.

Vince

Edit: to add - we were typing our responses at the same time, and I see you are using a Galaxy S4 - your phone has an app called "gallery" - follow my instructions for viewing the details of the photo to confirm it's orientation.

Vince, you are exactly right. I took them in portrait, the phone automatically saved it in landscape, and I rotated it back to portrait in gallery. Details showed 180, 90, or 0 depending on orientation.

A great looking Cross, Frank. I am glad your wife is healing now; this is one Cross you can both lay down now. I have found my images on Instagram come out sideways on my tablet , but not my phone. I have found Dr. Google helpful on these kind of matters. I would like to wish you and your wife a very Merry Christmas, if you celebrate Christmas, from the great, still-green, North.

First, glad your wife is doing better and continuing to heal. Second, I like the cross. My complements on it. How did you do the texturing at the bottom?

Frank of all the work you have posted. I like this one most.

A couple of questions:

What bit (s) did you use for the hill that the cross is on or did you use a chistle?

The other is I can't tell about the ribbon. Is the outer edge routed the same depth as the edge of the cross. lighter depth or painted on?

Anyway a very nice look. Hope the wife continues to do well on her way to 100 percent
