I am trying to import images from PSE8 to Blog Stomp. It's a program that batches pictures to add watermarks and prepare for the web. It works great with my horizontal images BUT my vertical images show up on their sides (horizontal) when I import them. Blog Stomp does not have an image rotation tool. How do I make sure my image stays vertical when it gets to Blog Stomp? I am a jewelry artist and not a computer programmer! LOL I enjoy posting pics of my work on Facebook and also uploading to my website. It's frustrating that I can't "batch" the vertical images. Any help you can give me is appreciated
Don't know anything about Blog Stomp, but most likely it is ignoring the orientation metadata that other programs like Elements read to automatically rotate your images so they are upright. You can disable this in the Elements Organzier by going to Preferences > Files and unchecking the Rotate JPEG's using Orientation Metadata option. Then you will know which images need to be manually rotated (available under the Edit menu). Then you should be able to use them in Blog Stomp without issue.
Hi Brett! Thanks so much for responding. I followed your instructions and low and behold, when I opened the Preferences-Files, the Rotate JPEGs box was already unchecked! Hmmmm? Any suggestions? Mucho appreciation Pam
Attn: Brett. Well, guess what? I spoke too soon. After I celebrated, I thought I better try to drop the vertical photo into my website or Facebook. It went back to horizontal. Maddening! I've tried checking and unchecking the boxes labeled JPEG and TIFF (both checked, both unchecked, one checked and not the other). I'm sorry to bother you but any other thoughts? Thanks so much. Pam
The thing about it reading and autorotating your images is that it is not a permanent change, it is just a temp change while using in our applications. I was suggesting turning off the auto rotate so you would know which ones you had to rotate manually before sending them off. My only other guess is that Blog Stomp is making some guesses as to which images need to be rotating based on some information in the file and doing so incorrectly.
