Is it just me or does it also annoy others when people post pictures sideways? Why do they even bother? It looks like the cakes are falling. Everytime I see a sideways cake I expect it to be under the Cake Disasters forum. thumbsdown.gif

do you mean the photos are actually sideways, or do you mean the photographer slanted the camera? I hate that!

i love the sideways, angled shots I've seen on here. I think it gives some of the cakes, according to the cake design and style and interesting look/effect. I sometimes try and copy that angled sideways shot myself but I'm no photographer and it always comes out looking a lil cheesy. lol

It annoys me when people don't take the time to flip their photo. I have to turn my head to check out the cake. So yeah, I'm with ya.

If it's just that they haven't rotated the photos, not everyone on here is a computer whiz! And I know it gives us the option to rotate photos after uploading them, but not everyone who posts photos here speaks English, maybe they don't understand what the buttons are for.

If they're uploading from a phone they probably don't even realize it's showing up sideways.

I know that's happened to me when I upload to flickr from my phone, it's not until I sign in to my account on my laptop that it shows up sideways.

Are you talking about the angle or the actual photo is the wrong way? I love to shoot at an angle myself sometimes to be honest, love it icon_smile.gif

I can't stand pictures of cakes that are sideways or on a slant. When I look at a picture of a cake, I want to see what it actually looked like--sitting on a table or countertop. (Along the same idea, I think that camera operators who tilt their cameras on figure skaters or who, even worse, show the skaters shadow on the ice instead of the skater should be sent to "re-education camps!)
Sorry--got OT there.
Cakes: keep pictures of them straight. Thank you.

My cakes, my pics! If I want to angle the camera I will!

Thank you.

Some people take slanted photos due to the light - and what effect they will get -

But then again - i have no idea if your talking about photos in general or the way they are posted on here - a clue would help icon_confused.gif

Each to their own -

I could be wrong, but I think the OP is referring to photos that upload completely on their side so that the cake is lying down.


It's just that the person uploading didn't use the "rotate" left/right button to post the photo "right side up", if you will.


The photo obviously isn't meant to be displayed that way since it's a straight on shot of the cake, it's just the person uploading it doesn't know how to or chooses not to turn the photo so it's in the right direction.

KWIM?

I am talking about photos that are laying on their side. The photos where the person doesn't rotate them correctly. Even if someone does not know how to do it you would think that they would ask someone for help.

As for the photos that were taken at an angle, those sometimes are not to my liking. It also depends on how much of an angle it is. Some people really go overboard. If the photographer wants to take them that way then it is up to them. Its the ones that are not rotated correctly that I don't like. Since there are so many beautiful cakes out there I don't even bother to look at the ones laying on their side.

Can you not go back and edit the photo later? I have never used flicker and I have not posted any photos on CC yet so I don't know.

Thought I was the only one who was annoyed by this. Could moderators rotate pics? Since this a sight for cake decorators, I prefer straight on pics. Save the creative angles for your website.

Oh sure, I can edit them. What I meant was that when I upload directly from my phone to Flickr it doesn't appear that the photo isn't turned upright, but when I sign on to Flickr from my laptop I realize that the photo needs to be rotated.

So maybe that is what is happening to some of the photos here. Maybe the people who upload don't even realize that the photo is showing up on it's side.

But, I tend to think that a lot of people just aren't that computer literate and therefore don't even know there's an option to rotate it.

Gee....I uploaded my cupcake photo from my phone and sure as shooting it's sideways so figured I'd go in this morning and fix it...but after seeing this thread, I'm leaving it sideways! This had been a horrid week in the news and one would think we have greater things to fret over...but if all it takes to send you into a snit is a sideways picture of a cake then you live in a very pampered world and I'll do my part to shake it up. Peace, love and understanding!!!

Thanks for explaining - but then - if you right click on them yourself you should be able to roate them right way up - yes?
Thats all i do so as to see them correctly....just thought i would mention it - thumbs_up.gif

I hate, hate, hate pictures that are taken on an angle. I don't think it's usually for artistic effect - it's the only way the picture taker can figure out how to get the whole cake in the frame. Take a step back, Einstein, or turn the camera sideways so the picture is portrait instead of landscape.

See I was right, phones do upload sideways. Last week my son's band played a local pub and I video taped an entire song on my phone. When I got home and uploaded it to Youtube, it was upside down. lol

Since I can't figure out how to flip the video, I have to flip my laptop so he doesn't look like he's standing on his head playing guitar.

Damn phones, between the spell check inserting words that I don't mean to type and the sideways photos and upside down video...I'm thinking these "smart"phones aren't always so smart.

Trust me. It takes alot more than a sideways photo to upset me and there is NOTHING you can do to get me there! At least my parents taught me not to intentionally try to "shake up" others. Which by the way, I think your comment is a hoot.

Obviously you have a few of your own! I still don't like photos that make a cake look like it is a disaster, but to each their own. thumbs_up.gif
I rest my case and am done with this thread. icon_biggrin.gif

I was having issues uploading pictures last week. When they finally loaded, they were sideways and I was unable to rotate them. I think it's a Cake Central issue, so be kind to those of us with sideways photos!
