Picture orientation on this forum..a suggestion

Many times when a poster posts a picture it will not necessarily come up in the right orientation for whatever reason. Sometimes being sideways or upside down. This makes for a harder ability for our members to see the problem a poster wants to convey.

I suggest an add-on to your browser that will allow the viewer to correct this as it's viewed. There are several such add-ons. I'm using ZOOM IMAGE with Firefox (Zoom Image) to re-orient and resize pictures.

I've found the problem mostly occurring with pictures posted from a phone where the orientation is not always known.

The picture orientation is always the same, the longer dimension is the horizontal. 640 by 480 (pixels) is the optimal size although the forum software will automatically resize larger pictures, up to about double that size, down to fit.
