I seem to have forgotten how to rotate an image 90 degrees in a post. Help @Greg Bernhardt @berkeman

Do you have a local copy of the image? Open it with some photo editor and there is usually a way to rotate the images in the editor. In the one below, the little round arrow icon at the top does the rotations.

Yes. I rotated it using microsoft paint but it doesn't appear rotated when creating a new post.

Also, there is some magic thing called "clearing your cache", but each time I try to resort to that, it clears my cookies for lots of websites. I'm kind of a klutz at that...

I'll post my storm shelter pics in my storm shelter thread. Maybe they're really rotated. If not, could you check them out and fix if not rotated?

Thanks

@berkeman

The images didn't get rotated with my browser(firefox 37).

For that matter I can't even select them so that I can attempt to rotate.

The link you gave goes to post #41 which has no photos. I assume you mean post #39. The photo in that post is displaying correctly for me (i.e. does not require rotation).

It goes to post #41 for me and it has the photos.

This is post #41...

Sure, have a good fire extinguisher but what are the odds of a serious fire in an all concrete buried storm shelter while waiting the few tens of minutes for a tornado to pass? I'd be more worried about sitting in concentrated Radon gas that accumulated over the year.

Post 41 is the last one in the thread, and I don't see your latest post. Are you sure you posted it? Post it again and if there's a duplicate I can delete it easily.

By the way, in Firefox if you hold down SHIFT while reloading a page, it should bypass the cache.

The images didn't get rotated with my browser(firefox 37).
37?? I'm on Firefox 83.0 (64-bit)

PF has no idea about image rotation, and generally the browser doesn't have that either (unless the website explicitly tells the browser to rotate images, PF does not). Normally browsers just show the image that was uploaded, whatever that might have been. If you want a different orientation you need to rotate it in your computer and then upload it as new image.

The actual steps depend on your choice of browser (which you mentioned was FireFox-for-clay-tablets or something?) but you can select to clear only files and images but not cookies and passwords.

Yes. I rotated it using microsoft paint but it doesn't appear rotated when creating a new post.
I'm curious. When you double-click on a JPEG file in a folder on your drive, what application does it open up in? Does your system not have a default photo viewer?

yep firefox 37 (64 bit) I like it, as it's less intrusive than the later versions. :approve:

But you are missing out on key security updates.

Now THAT looks like an unstable 3-body problem!

I agree with @berkeman here − it's easy enough in MS Paint:

original angle:


1606466651109.png


(reduced in size and) rotated 90° to the right:


1606466770790.png


and there are online image processors that allow whichever degrees of rotation (at https://www.imgonline.com.ua/eng/rotate-image-360.php I chose 45 degrees)

1606467029826.png


That image is (reportedly − I don't have a to-me-reliable source, but I don't disbelieve it) of two bullets that were recovered after the battle at Gallipoli.

That's also a (silly?) way to keep the PF XenForo software from effectively rounding off the corners of the image.

I think Photo Viewer will allow you to rotate pics.
Just rotate it to the correct orientation and the next time you open it it should be correct.
