It only does that to photos if you're south of I-277 or the Blimp hangar holding your phone upside down.

Don't feel bad, I see other threads with photos showing up the same. Weird.

This is becasue of Windows 10's auto-rotate "feature".

The photo as taken is actually upside down.

When you copy it to a Win10 computer, Windows looks at the file's metadata, figures it is upside down, so it very helpfully renders it on your screen the right way up ... BUT does NOT update the file's metadata. So you see it the right way up, even though it is upside down.

So when you post the image on any platform other than Win 10, it is still upside down...

Somehow this all made perfect sense to some MS software jockey ...

Okay, so maybe being south of the Blimp hangar wasn't the gremlin...being half right is better than I win at home.

Since my Spider is tucked away about 50 yards to the west from there, I'd say that's a pretty good guess judging by the buildings in that one photo. Maybe, Stradale 1?

The other Pete down the street from there blasted mine with care three years ago. Both do excellent work. Mine was painted closer to you, Dragline. On Ben Hur Blvd.

Slowly? You've only been at it for two months. I'd say that's a pretty amazing turnaround.

Now that is a gorgeous car. You could tour N. America in that and have a smile on your face the whole trip.

MS always seems to think it knows what you want even if it isn't what you think you want.
