I know the picture cannot be large these days, as the automatic shrinking doesn't seem to work. And there is a problem with the direction of the pictures that is known. It doesn't always turn the picture the way you want it...

Thanks, hippolein! Reduced size and it worked.

I have a problem when loading photos taken on my iPhone. It usually puts them in sideways. I find it really annoying as there is no way to crop or re orientate them in the website. I have had problems too uploading a replacement phone once I have uploaded one. So if it goes in wrong then it is there wrong for good.

This problem has been around for quite a few months. There are a few threads around about it. An example is below:

I have the same problem with my iPhone - the photo uploads in the wrong orientation (eg sideways). If I upload a new version of the photo via my laptop, it doesn't seem to replace the old photo. But if I click on the old photo, the larger version that pops up *is* the new photo. And reports are that other people using different computers see the new photo.

General consensus seems to be that it's a cache issue and if you wait a little while (maybe even a day or two), the new photo will eventually appear for you. That's what's happened for me, although I have to say that for one particular photo, it took several months to change!

I'm now especially careful not to accidently upload an incorrect photo via my laptop and I don't upload photos at all via my iPhone any more because of the orientation problem.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
