    Just attached a picture to my reno post. I had to make the picture really narrow otherwise it would keep rotating it 90 degrees to make it more narrow...

    The end result is the pic is tiny and only takes up half the width of the text on the screen anyway...

    The forum does automatic EXIF rotation - was the photo taken in a rotated position? Not sure what else might be going on here.

    Pic was taken in a rotated position, so i rotated it in paint, reduced its size, added two more rotated images to the same pic.

    I thought it may have just wanted to rotate it for the sake of it, so i rotated it back 90 degrees before uploading and it ended up keeping it that way. Seems its actual issue was that the image was apparently too wide so it would rotate it so the shorter ength was horizontal.

    Is there a way of increasing the set width of the image before it thinks its too wide and tries to adjust?

    It shouldn't rotate because of being too wide - it will only shrink it if it's too wide, rotation is only triggered via EXIF data.

    I think what's probably happened is that you've rotated the image using software that doesn't update the EXIF data, so the forum thinks that (according to EXIF), the photo needs to be rotated and doesn't know you've already done it. It's too smart for it's own good!

    Just upload photos directly without editing - the forum should take care of the rest.
