But is there a way to fix it myself. Or stop it from happening at all. It annoys the shit out of me.
And can I just say taking a pic while trying to hold something up to my shoulder is a real pain in the ass. Which is why I used masking tape. My watch kept going black since it’s past my bedtime, then it wanted my passcode because I had it off my wrist to take the pic because the tattoo is higher up. I tried balancing my iPad near my shoulder. I tried putting the phone up and taking the pic with the iPad. Using the mirror just shows the phone and no date. So I said fuck it and slapped some tape on my arm.
@Ignorant I took the pic vertically. Then uploaded it (turning the phone sideways to get the photo icon to show up). But no matter what all my vertical pics rotate. I’d have to test it with a horizontal pic, but I’m pretty sure I’ve had the same problem.
@Ignorant@remo28 I have had the rotation issue. I “edit” my photo on my phone. I don’t usually change anything just touch edit and then save. Then it loads correctly. Somewhere there is a fancy explanation about how phones save photos.
@remo28 if it’s showing vertical in your photos app on your phone then something is maybe stripping the Exif Orientation data when uploaded. You can try uploading to http://exif-viewer.com/ and see what it shows.
1 = 0 degrees: the correct orientation
2 = 0 degrees, mirrored: image has been flipped back-to-front.
3 = 180 degrees: image is upside down.
4 = 180 degrees, mirrored: image has been flipped back-to-front and is upside down.
5 = 90 degrees: image has been flipped back-to-front and is on its side.
6 = 90 degrees, mirrored: image is on its side.
7 = 270 degrees: image has been flipped back-to-front and is on its far side.
8 = 270 degrees, mirrored: image is on its far side.
Guys, guys, posting a watch or a sticker with a date scrawled does not conform to UNESCO Proof of Life Whitepaper 1982, amended 2012.
You have to have a newspaper or the front page of a website that changes daily (hrm? any ideas?) but will continue to exist in the public record (so, again, newspaper is best) to show that the picture could not have been taken before that date, since the front page had not been created before then.
Simply by posting here you prove that you had it no later than today… but you can’t actually predate something via the PoL Whitepaper guidelines no matter what your intention.
TL;DR: None of you should kidnap something for ransom.
After twice getting the repeat scrolling green bar of doom I’m now desperate for this temporary ink (for vein marking) to qualify. And the irony is if I were brave enough to get some real ink I couldn’t donate for 3 months!
