TitleAugust 2016 Update
BodyWhat happened to July? No, I wasn&#039;t kept busy by the 4th...<br /> <br /> Anyway, today I&#039;m going to talk about the approval panel and EXIF metadata tags in specific. This one may run a little long, but I&#039;ll try to keep it quick:<br /> <br /> What&#039;s EXIF? Well, among other things it records whether your image was created in portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal) orientation. Most scanners/cameras on the market these days will tag a captured image accordingly so that it can record the image faster, and when it is later viewed, the viewing program will &#039;know&#039; if it needs to rotate that image rightside up before showing it to you onscreen.<br /> <br /> Unfortunately, our submission process currently <strong>does not</strong> acknowledge these tags when it compiles resized (thumbnail) versions of your submission; this may cause some images (mostly digital photos taken in portrait orientation) to appear sideways after processing.<br /> <br /> If this happens to one of your submissions, unfortunately it&#039;s your job to fix it. Exactly how to do this depends on your program of choice, but in general, try opening the image up in your editor, then save a secondary copy of it in a different file. After you&#039;ve submitted (or updated) the piece, check back up on it later to see if our servers processed it correctly.<br /> <br /> And that is all for now. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
