Title: Avatar sideways am I doing something wrong ?
Post by: look2thesky on March 10, 2015, 04:18:56 PM
Not giving me an option to turn it, by default it's loading sideways.
(I'm not too good obviously at uploading, and it's making me a bit dizzy)
Thanks for any info..

Thanks.

Same thing happened to me when I first tried uploading mine from my iPhone, I had to pick one that I had copied to my computer and rotated it there.  Looks like you must have figured it out though, your pic looks right to me.

I think it has to do with picture size selected when you upload your pics to the host site (such as tinypic or photobucket). Try uploading your pics again to the host site, only this time selecting a smaller pic size.

I'm not sure which pic host site you're on, but I know tinypic will sometimes do this.

Hope this helps.

And I second stargazer, your avatar pic looks right-side up, to me also.

I just uploaded it from iPhone not through another source.
Haven't checked out tiny pic but I didn't like photobucket because it seems anyone can see all the pics you upload. Guess it will take a bit of research, thank you Bear & Baylee..

Some of the features of the new layout will take some time to learn, like add poll, etc..

You can change your library settings on photobucket to private so no one else can see it.
