Default Canít embed photos anymore

Before I could embed pics from Imgur . Yes I know how to do it threw the panel here in advanced , but half the pics come out sideways and I’m on an iPad so I don’t know how to fix and can’t be bothered with the hassle .

Here’s the link .

So before it used to look post with [img] link .jpg[/img] , but they changed it on their site in order to make things more complicated. But it no longer works either ?

We can fix images that load sideways. We have to save the picture, open it and rotate it, then save the rotated version and edit it into the post. As you can tell that takes time so unless the rotated image makes it hard to get the point across I don't do it that often.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

So do you save it intentionally sideways , then it comes out normal? One th8 g I’ve never managed to do is put text between the pics f I uploaded then here .
Preferred Imgur , but something went wrong recently.

Well I saved it sideways and it’s still sideways lol . Guess I misunderstood. I think it’s all @bout the aspect ratio . Mike mentioned it one time

When I save it from someone's post it gets saved in the same orientation. Then I rotate it to the correct orientation and save it as a new file and switch that one with the original. I'm not sure why they get corrupted to start with but it's a common problem. and the worst of it is that it is not consistent. I haven't figured out how to put text between pics either but you can download Irfanview which is free and it will allow you to add text in the pictures which is the next best thing.

The problem is that many (especially newer) cameras don't actually rotate the image, they just change the header (beginning of the file) to mark which way to view it. If the viewer program doesn't obey that, then you have that problem. The reason they don't actually rotate it is a matter of picture quality. If the format of the picture is a lossy format (like jpg), every time you save it as a new picture there is some loss of quality (noise) added to the picture. The reason that they use lossy formats is because the file size is much smaller, which is important for speed and storage space.

Rick, referring to the picture of your bathroom... I see what looks like a builders level above the alcove. Is that a picture or is it an opening into your garage workshop? Nice job of the bathroom, by the way. Now climb through the opening and start i...….ng your garage.
