I had an issue with posting pictures a few days ago. what happend was I posted a picture and it flipped sideways when I posted it even though the picture was the right way around when taken. The problem has not happend again when I posted a picture recently.

That's just a problem with how phones handle orientation while the actual image is sideways.

Yeah, DT hates phones. Especially if it’s in a pm

DT has nothing to do with it. Phones hate the world outside phones, and may save photos in a retarded way. E.g. you could make a horizontal picture, and instead of saving it as a horizontal picture (duh) it saves it as a vertical one with some exif or whatever data "got you, it's really 90% ccw". Then when exporting it throws its shit over the wall, and good luck to the rest of the world with that.

Don’t DSLRs use the orientation EXIF tag in just the same way? That is its purpose, after all.

In any case, either phones should fix it when exporting, or desktop OS or browsers should fix it. But not all the websites in the world, which would have to post-process photos and rotate stuff.

Correct. This is a browser issue. And, as we well know, those guys are all dicks!

Pardon my ignorance, but I thought I had to put images on Imgur and then bbcode link it in. Is there a way to directly insert an image to DT?

Yes. All my images are hosted here. There’s a button in the UI somewhere to attach images. Then you press the insert inline button next to each one to have them in specific places in your post.

Correct. This is a browser issue.
Embedded images in HTML documents are not rotated according to the EXIF tag, in any browser.
The "width" and "height" from the image's header are used as is. AFAIK, that is because of the HTML specification says so.

Before posting an image, open it in a paint program. If the program asks you if image should be rotated, then do so and save the image.
I open all my images in Gimp anyway before posting, also to crop it, adjust colour and exposure if necessary and scale down to a more web-friendly size (posting a super-grainy 4K×3K picture would be a waste of bandwidth and storage on the server and is inconsiderate to everyone).

Of course, the browser could just use the rotation from EXIF and present it to the HTML engine running according to the specs in the "right" dimensions like nothing happened.

There are probably a million discussions about this on the Internet, with people who know much better. The introduction of phones with different orientations really created this problem, and phones throwing this problem over the wall, like "hey it's your problem" and browsers saying like "nope, it's your problem". Still lame that this is still a problem after all this time with both parties still waving their lazy cocks around. This is not exactly like putting a person on the moon.
