Why are images appearing rotated on iOS devices?

People will occasionally report problems with images appearing rotated to the right or left on iPhones and iPads, especially if those images were taken using a camera on an Apple device and then uploaded to your site.

If you are noticing that an image on your site is being erroneously rotated on iOS devices, take the following actions:

  1. Download the image.
  2. Save it on your computer.
  3. Rotate the image using image rotation tools available in image editors such as Photoshop, The Gimp, OSX's Preview, and Microsoft's image gallery.
  4. Save the image once it is correctly rotated.
  5. Re-upload it to your site and replace the existing image with the fixed image.
