Inline image ... in WHAT? E-mail? A file sent via chat client? What?

On your desktop PC, extract to a file, and use an editor to rotate. You
didn't mention the OS on your desktop PC, but some come with an image
editor that will let you rotate an image. If you don't have one, XnView
and Irfanview (both free but for Windows, so you'll have to find
something else for Linux) have some editing features, like rotation.


See this illustrative screenshot...
https://i.postimg.cc/wxwH4m9S/picture.jpg

If the user is on Windows, then he can get Irfanview he
o https://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm

For XnView, he can get it he
o https://www.xnview.com/en/xnview/

Other freeware image editors that I have on my software archives are
o C:\software\editor\pic\artweaver
o C:\software\editor\pic\fastone
o C:\software\editor\pic\fotor
o C:\software\editor\pic\fotosketcher
o C:\software\editor\pic\ghostscript
o C:\software\editor\pic\gimp
o C:\software\editor\pic\imagemagick
o C:\software\editor\pic\inkscape
o C:\software\editor\pic\irfanview
o C:\software\editor\pic\jsware_crop
o C:\software\editor\pic\krita
o C:\software\editor\pic\morph
o C:\software\editor\pic\paint.net
o C:\software\editor\pic\paintshoppro_freeware
o C:\software\editor\pic\paintstar
o C:\software\editor\pic\photodemon
o C:\software\editor\pic\photopad
o C:\software\editor\pic\pinta
o C:\software\editor\pic\vicman_last_known_good_vers ion
o C:\software\editor\pic\xnview
o C:\software\editor\pic\paint.lnk

He can also modify the JPEG orientation tag, if it's in the EXIF data
(the OP didn't say what platform, nor editor, nor type of image format)
he might want to make use of any of these freeware exif editors below:
o C:\software\editor\exif\analogexif
o C:\software\editor\exif\exifdatechangerlite
o C:\software\editor\exif\exifer
o C:\software\editor\exif\exifmanager
o C:\software\editor\exif\exifpilot
o C:\software\editor\exif\exiftool
o C:\software\editor\exif\exiftoolgui
o C:\software\editor\exif\exiftran
o C:\software\editor\exif\exiv2
o C:\software\editor\exif\metadata++

BTW, if he needs video editors and/or codecs, see this freeware archive:
https://i.postimg.cc/Wz0vLjWj/editors.jpg

For example, these are the video editors, some of which rotate files:
o C:\software\editor\vid\adobe_premiere
o C:\software\editor\vid\avisynth
o C:\software\editor\vid\kdenlive
o C:\software\editor\vid\mpc_be
o C:\software\editor\vid\mpc_with_klite
o C:\software\editor\vid\mpc_without_klite
o C:\software\editor\vid\shotcut
o C:\software\editor\vid\videopad
o C:\software\editor\vid\vlc

And, if needed to play the video, these are my freeware codec archives:
o C:\software\editor\codec\avicodec
o C:\software\editor\codec\codecinstaller
o C:\software\editor\codec\cole2k
o C:\software\editor\codec\gspot
o C:\software\editor\codec\klite
o C:\software\editor\codec\mediainfo
o C:\software\editor\codec\screencapturecodec
o C:\software\editor\codec\videoinspector

If he needs video converters, these are in my freeware converter archive:
o C:\software\editor\convert\avidemux
o C:\software\editor\convert\avisynth
o C:\software\editor\convert\handbrake
o C:\software\editor\convert\oxelon
o C:\software\editor\convert\super
o C:\software\editor\convert\totallyfreeconverter
o C:\software\editor\convert\virtualdub

For example, to rotate video clips on Windows, Linux, or the Mac:

The experiences of others drastically reduces the high cost of freeware.

As it happens I use Faststone BUT I want my desktop clinet to do it like
my phone does - there and then!
Stop telling me what I already know.
That's not the question I asked!

Hi Jim Scott,

Here is the entirety of the question you asked of the Android newsgroup:
I get an inline image which is ok on my phone, but on my desktop clent
it is sideways. So when I forward it to someone else, they get the same.
How do I fix it?


You've been given the answer by nospam already on how to fix it.
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.mobile.android/ldnwumd0HNY/Dwy8erPwAwAJ

Multiple times, in fact, he gave you the answer on how to fix it.
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.mobile.android/ldnwumd0HNY/sN5HgXj_AwAJ

And Andy Burns also gave you an answer (via a question).
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.mobile.android/ldnwumd0HNY/UBJENaTwAwAJ

And VanguardLH gave you an answer to your question.
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/comp.mobile.android/ldnwumd0HNY/yCi2ncDzAwAJ

If those answers aren't what you need/want, then you may need to clarify
your question, as all of their answers are completely correct
(as were mine).

All the answers were perfectly correct, but the question lies with the
desktop client so I'm asking the right question in the wrong group.

What desktop client are you using & on what OS platform?

Assuming you mean this image is in an email, then you need to use a
desktop email "clent/clinet" in which the image viewer part knows about
orientation tags, if you want to have "inline images" appear as they do
on your 'phone (in which the email client probably _does_ know about
orientation tags). Similarly, if you want to be able to forward them
without doing anything to do with them, then you need the people to whom
you forward them to also have such a client.

Do such email programs exist? I don't think
most software even turns them. This is yet

Any JPG that requires software to check the
orientation EXIF tags is a faulty image.

But it doesn't hurt to send a non-confrontational
email to the sender, suggesting they could deal with
orientation when they take the photo.

many do.

nope.

the orientation tag dates back to when digital cameras became popular,
roughly 20 years ago, *long* before iphone was even an idea, let alone
an actual product.

nobody wants to go through thousands of photos and manually rotate the
ones that are in portrait or upside-down orientation.

Any JPG that requires software to check the
orientation EXIF tags is a faulty image.


there is nothing faulty about using an orientation tag.

what's faulty is deliberately ignoring the tag when displaying the
image.

I don't know. I'd be surprised if the various ways of getting an image
taken on one 'phone to appear on another 'phone don't know about
orientation tags, but being such an old fossil that my 'phone spends
most of its time turned off, I rather suspect they use something other
than the quaint thing we know as "email" for transferring such images.

I don't think
most software even turns them.


Possibly not email software. I think I've seen a control in IrfanView
for whether it should heed orientation tags or not - hang on, I'll look:
hmm, not sure I understand it, but there _are_ several references in the
Help.

This is yet
another harebrained idea to save iPhone users
from having to understand what they're doing.


To be fair, I think several standalone cameras have
orientation-detection hardware too, and I'd be surprised if they don't
just record a flag rather than storing the pixels in a different order.

Any JPG that requires software to check the
orientation EXIF tags is a faulty image.


I'm not quite sure what you're saying the if you acknowledge the
_existence_ of the orientation tag (I didn't know it was part of EXIF
but that makes sense), then what would you consider its function?


But it doesn't hurt to send a non-confrontational
email to the sender, suggesting they could deal with
orientation when they take the photo.

Good luck with that (-:. (I don't mean re confrontation, I just mean
most people taking pictures these days - with means 'phone users -
wouldn't have a clue what you were on about.)

Yes, it's part of EXIF. Bit EXIF is not universally supported
and it's only in JPGs. There's just no reason to need that tag.
The camera can save the image as it's taken. Instead of doing
that they create all sorts on incompatibility. I get a lot of those
sideways images. People don't know because they're seeing it
on their iPhone where they took the picture. I don't understand
why they ever would have used such an idiotic method. Whatever
edge of the camera is up should be the top of the picture.

digital cameras have used orientation tags for more than 20 years.
