Problem Adding pictures with orientation

Post by SNOWYOWL » 03 Aug 2022 19:56

HI All

I have added approx. 30 old family pics to my project from One Drive and they all appear in the media window. They are all j.peg format However around half of them are upside down and I cant see why some are ok, others not. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you resolve it?

Yes, that is a recurrent problem in FH V6.
See FHUG Knowledge Base Common Image Problems for Photo Orientation in Family Historian 6 and below.
Typically digital camera JPEG photos include Exif Orientation saying which way they should be displayed and is ignored by FH.

The problem has been largely resolved in FH V7.

Further to this problem, I have upgraded to version 7 , repeated the process and all pictures are now correctly displayed. (For reference these were old pictures, scanned on a flatbed scanner and saved to One Drive.)
