This is probably painfully obvious :doh:, but I'm not the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to computers! When I drag a vertically oriented photo from my files onto this site, it always flops over to horizontal. How do I prevent this?
Thanks very much for your help.

I think it's a forum software bug? It definitely happens to me too when I post camera JPEGs, I have to bring them into an editing program for some minor tweak and save again to get vertical files to stay that way on the forum.
Thanks Andrew; appreciate the information. I save most of my photos RAW + JPEG and often just post the latter, but will take your advice.

It seems to depend on the operating system. I never get this problem if I post using my Android phone, or my MacBook. But it happens about 50% of the time when I post on my iPad. Less often than it used to, but still annoying.

Where as for me it's always from my Android phone. It sometimes takes repeated tries to get a phone picture to upload in the orientation I want. I just presumed it was something with my semi-old Samsung S7.

It never happens during my Nikon/Capture One workflow.
