View Full Version : Uploaded photo orientation incorrect

2nd April 2008, 10:19 AM
Hi, i am a newbie to the site and loving it. It has proved to be a great recourse and has answered allot of my niggly Mac questions already.

One problem I cannot find a solution to is the following....
Say I have a photo I want to upload to say Facebook, Photoshop etc. When I open the photo to view the photo it is correctly orientated, however when I upload the same picture it somehow manages to spin itself 45 degrees to the left. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? I use a Powerbook G4 1.33

Thanks for any feedback which you have to offer.

Welcome to Mac.

It always helps to mention which OS version and which version of iPhoto you're using.

This issue you're talking about happened a lot in older versions of iPhoto. Rebuilding the thumbnail/photo database seems to fix it, as per the instructions here:
