Hey all,

i tried to upload an image today after creating a new account (i took a little hiatus from this beautiful site and figured I'd make a brand new start).

I thought about writing something encouraging for noobs like myself about painting minis. Well here's the Picture:

 


Er, is there any way to rotate it? Other than taking a new horizontally aligned picture of the mini?

Thanks for helping a clueless guy out! And a lazy one too I guess, I could probably look it up around here somewhere... i used the ancient ancient uploading link btw.

Open it on your PC, rotate it, and upload it again.

Thanks Nate! Problem is, the picture is aligned correctly on my PC...
well I suppose i'll just have to do a bit of trial and error. I just bought a new laptop, since my old desktop kind of gave in some time ago, so this is probably more a problem of lacking computer skills in general... Windows 8 sure doesn't help.

The PC is the problem indeed laugh. That was also part of the reason while I was inactive on this site for some time since I couldn't be arsed to post stuff from my phone. Fiddly!

Some image viewers allow you to rotate the image in the display, but it doesn't actually rotate the pixels in the file. Opening the image in an image editor like GIMP or Photoshop, rotating, and then saving should help.
