Strange how the web m.b will turn a photo sideways sometimes..? 🤷‍♂️ @manton

@Burk That's usually the orientation info in a photo. It's automatically corrected when posting from the iOS and macOS apps, but can sometimes be wrong when uploading via the web unless you export it for the web first from an image editor.

@manton I thought that might be the case. This last one was shot portrait, exported portrait. The meta data shows

Orientation: 6 (Rotated 90 deg CCW)

I guess iOS / Photos did something automatically to fix a perceived incorrect orientation. Interesting!
