Classifieds Photos

Post by bentonquick » Tue Nov 17, 2015 9:14 am

Just wondering why people put their photos in the classifieds sideways or at 90*. I would prefer to see the item that I am thinking about purchasing right-side up. :scratch: :dontknow: :old_glory:

Not positive, but I think it might be the result of uploading pics from some mobile devices.

Here is a free picture resize and rotation on line utility. This one works really well for both features.

I know that Android phones rotate the images when compressing them. My wife has an Android and I have an I phone. Every pic or video she sent came sideways or upside down. I figured she was doing it till we talked/experimented with it. She had no idea. It looked right one her phone and I bet those posting don't know others see it rotated.

I CAN TELL YOU. WHEN YOU DOWN LOAD PICTURES TO THIS SITE THEY SOMETIMES CHANGE TO AN UPRIGHT POSITION AND THEN YOU HAVE TO GO TO YOUR AD AND DO AN EDIT AND CLICK ON A SECTION THAT ALLOWS YOU TO ROTATE THE PICTURES BUT I CANT REMEMBER THE WORD IN THE EDIT SECTION WHICH ALLOWS THAT.

It is a little aggrevating but now I understand a little better about how it could happen. What I like are the pics taken in the shade or dark where all you can see is the outline of a boat. I always thought, "Well there's a guy that was told by the wife to sell the boat." :lol:
As a side note bentonquick, when you want to insert a degree symbol (°) hold Alt and hit 504.

I would like to know why ass holes are using Pics of my boat as their cover pic for their add. Their are 2 people on this site that copied my picture off CL and posted my boat in their add. I just noticed this today after listing my boat for sale on here.

Looks like the classifieds script screwed up due to those images having the same name as the one you uploaded. I changed the name of your image and it automatically removed the other ones. Your picture wasn't in their ad until you uploaded it to your ad.

It appears to have been a flaw in the classifieds that I'll need to investigate.
