Anyone have any idea why some pictures are posted sideways or upside down recently?

It has to do with the way your phone or camera saves the photo.
I don’t know exactly why but I usually save images to my computer and rotate, crop, and resize them before posting them here.

Somehow Facebook’s coding straightened out and resizes whatever you throw up there.

In other words this site does not have the auto rotate feature that the phones have.

Odd... my photo's are correct on my phone and correct when I transfer them to my laptop. I post here from my laptop.

If ever a photo is transferred to a lap top (I do the same thing), you can rotate it if it is not the correct orientation.

I believe it has to do with the image info embedded into the file from the phone and the way the forum software interprets it. 

When taking pictures with my Samsung Galaxy S8 for example.  If shooting in landscape mode, I can hold the phone either way and the image will display properly on the screen whether the phone is held with the home button on the left or the right of the screen.  The proper orientation for most any phone to take a landscape image is the home button on the right, though.  If it is taken with the button oriented to the left, sure it will display correctly on the screen, but the image info embedded into it will cause a lot of other devices to show the image as upside down.

Same as in portrait mode - take photos with the home button facing down.
