Artjak: don't look then! (Meant kindly)
I'm using the thread as I think Salino intended - experimentally. I have been concerned that my previous photo difficulties, when I joined the forum recently, and all the support you and others were offering, was hijacking the Garden Gallery thread from its intended purpose.
Salino creating this thread as a testing site seemed a good way to protect everyone else from becoming irritated by all the failed photo posting (not just mine) by giving those of us who experienced problems freedom for experimentation. That way I have learnt, for example, that cropping the photos can help (Although I'm not yet sure why?)
Salino - thanks for suggestions. I know I need to remember to save the inverted image in library folder before uploading (although I did forget once for twice). It doesn't seem to correct the problem however.
Incidentally, the cropped photos also enlarge, and fill the screen; all I do (on the iPad) is tap the screen and up they come.
To make an exhaustive (and exhausting!) set of tests I would need to save the same photo in all inversions (= 4) in both landscape and portrait orientations (x 4 = 8) as well as testing any other variables that may affect finished result (eg how many photos are submitted in the same post, how much cropping is used.... It's endless! so, for the moment I'm not going to. Had enough!
Artjak: you can look now - I'm stopping for today!
