I have been trying Aurigma Up on my local server and it has been working well with photos taken in landscape. However, all photos taken in portrait are being rotated. As no-one else has mentioned this, I assumed it was due to the behavior of windows 7 explorer. I've just tried on a live server, and the same thing is happening. I'm sure I'm just making a stupid mistake, but I can't work out what it is.

My upload.php is:

Code:

<?php 

$path = realpath('./pics') . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; 

$fileCount = $_POST["PackageFileCount"];

for ($i = 0; $i < $fileCount; $i++) {

    if (isset($_FILES['File0_' . $i])) {

        move_uploaded_file($_FILES['File0_' . $i]['tmp_name'], $path . $_POST['SourceName_' . $i]);

    }

}

Hello Nick,

This is known issue too. The fact it that photos made by iPad/iPhone camera do not have EXIF data. Thus, uploaded photo is rotated to landscape format.

Thank you for your response. I read somewhere else on this forum that the iphone does not have any EXIF data. I thought that was a bit strange as I know of no digital cameras that don't produce EXIF data. I checked Flickr which does show iphone photos in the correct orientation, and there is a EXIF display button for iphone photos. I noticed that there is an "orientation" tag. I assume that if Aurigma Up is not able to detect this orientation tag, it can be done after the photo is downloaded. Are there any clever people here who know how to detect and re-orientate with a PHP script. It's a little beyond what I can do.

Hello,

Yes, you are right – photos made by iPad/iPhone camera have EXIF data with orientation tag. However, photos made by camera directly from Aurigma Up (through New Photo button) have no EXIF. It is an issue of Aurigma Up software, which will be fixed. In other words, photos which were made by any other applications have EXIF, and Aurigma Up can detect orientation tag of such photos.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

It seems as if Apple has changed the way they process the orientation. It's my understanding that photos used to be orientated in the phone before sending prior to ios4. Since ios4, they are not orientated, but sent with the orientation in the EXIF to save on the iphone needing to do the extra re-orienting process in the phone.

Anyway...

So what you are saying is that instead of trying to work out how to use this data to correct the orientation, I can wait for your fix! That would be much easier! I understand that you are very busy, but do you know when this fix may be coming?

Thank you again for providing such a nice little app!

Hi,
today I downloaded the new version of Aurigma Up for iPad.
The exif data as latitude, longitude and altitude are not sent if the photo is taken with the new photo button.
It also appears to you?
