    Most of us are likely using our phones to take pictures to share on this site. The picture upload tool seems to have a mind of its own on whether your picture will be right side up, sideways or upside down. Here's a documented test of importing various shots.

    I've been told to resize them slightly and re-save them on the iPhone and then they seem to post just fine...go figure.

    Just crop them slightly on your phone like Carter said... just a glitch with the forum software

    I’m guessing the cropping causes the iPhone to add (or update) the EXIF attributes in the image file (includes orientation, GPS location, aperture settings, etc) such that the forum software then properly orients the photo.

    It’s relatively trivial to dump the EXIF data of a photo—diff’ing pre and post edit would show which attributes are actually modified and thus the one(s) resulting in the proper display of the photo.

    I've found rotating them, all the way around 360º (on the computer anyway) does it as well. May work on the phone.
