We were receiving a lot of incorrectly rotated photos in the admin section, and the percentage was only rising as the time passed, so Johny recently asked me to implement an option for him to rotate the images directly in the admin section before accepting them. That was actually a great idea, so I immediately started working on it.
As I was progressing I experienced a weird issue with some photos. Sometimes after uploading a normal image, it was displayed in the admin section with an incorrect orientation 🤮. And that's when I started investigating more into this issue, as it bothered me. The thing I found out is that some images contained orientation in their metadata, and we were not taking this into account 🤯.
It took me some time, but the fix for it is now already deployed on the website. We're now respecting orientation metadata for all the images you upload anywhere on the site (pattern photos, pattern videos, user avatar, alpha from image generator, ...) 🎉 🎉 🎉.
In addition to that, we now have an option to rotate photos integrated directly into the admin section, so you should never get your photo declined because of incorrect rotation again 🎉. This also applies to the thumbnail images for videos 🙂.
I hope you'll enjoy uploading photos even more now!
Have a nice day, and sorry it took us so long 🙂.
