Many of the old cameras had no orientation sensors, so the natural view of the photo can come out wrong. Most newer cameras have orientation sensors, and they encode that information into the digital image file. Unfortunately, Apple products encode that information in a proprietary manner, so the Apple user sees it as expected, but a generic non-Apple user sees it in a random orientation which may be wrong.

If you look close you'll find a dog in the photo.

OK, I'm a newbie, just signed on to try to research which lakes have had trout removed for the sake of the yellow legged frog. Let's see if I can post a picture I took here:
This is South Lake, in the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness, taken first thing in the morning:

Not seeing the image - editing your link in the quoted text I saw the URL pretty much ends after .jpg and that seems to work here:

OK, I can see it on my screen, you can't see it on yours. What else do I need to do then?

your link to the image includes some strange additional stuff no web browser will know what to do with, unless you have some sort of plugin from wherever you are hosting this. Totally non-standard stuff. I bold faced below what I chopped off to make it work. Note I had to add an _ underscore at the front so this text would show as plain text in this message. you use the https:// string up to the .jpg and that's all it takes.

OK, thanks. That makes sense. I copied the URL from a website I created. I need to use a photo hosting site instead. Odd it looked fine on my computer
