Time to help with sideways Cell phone pictures!!

6 posts in this topic

Wanted to start a post to help people with their cell phone pictures. I don't use my cell phone to take pictures but many people do and this seems to be an issue for just about everyone.

We need some of you "in the know" techy folks to offer some ideas to help others solve this issue when in the field taking pictures of that Trophy.

I see this all over even on the C-List when people are trying to sell things and my College grad daughter sends pictures and video's of the grandkids to us at an angle auuug! 

(Disclaimer): don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings by re-posting their pictures but need some for examples of the issue.

Test

 

hold phone horizontal and it works fine.  Verticle, not so good.

The other thing I do to correct sometimes is run it back through the laptop and save it so it can be edited and rotated as I've done here. The recently updated editing package on my phone should allow me to do it there now too but previously it did not.

easy to do on the laptop for sure but for those who post directly from phones it's easiest to just take the pic horizontal.

One thing to try is to crop all of your vertical photos. You can keep the same margins so you don't lose any of your photo, just use the crop tool in the phone and save it. Then upload it here. Should work.

Thanks have wondered about this.  Got some good advice on here.  Did not know the horizontal trick.  That sounds the easiest.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
