This is false....

The fact that other platforms can recognise correct image orientation and phpBB cannot makes it a phpBB problem. Users aren't going to move away from iOS or change their behaviour just because phpBB doesn't work like every other platform - they'll just get frustrated and use something like Instagram or Facebook instead and great phpBB boards suffer as a result. For my board, it is now the number 1 complaint I receive from users and I would love for it to be fixed. With 70% of traffic on my board from mobile devices and 99% of photos taken with a smartphone, it is actually a big deal.

I've tried many of the code suggestions posted on this board in the past and none actually work.

Even better would be a simple tool to allow the user to preview and rotate the image in the attachment tab as they're actually composing a new post. vBulletin has recently implemented a preview system for its attachments that works very well.

Exactly!

If this board (phpBB) had a "likes" or agree button I'd click on it for your post.

I can only fully agree with you. I like phpbb very much, although I've been running my board since February. But every time I see the misaligned pictures that annoys me.

If at least the user had the opportunity to rotate the picture after the upload would be a great help.

All, please use the Quote function only when it is needed to make your reply clear and only quote the parts necessary not the whole post every time. Excessive quoting (especially of long messages and/or multiple images) makes reading the topic extremely difficult.

And boring seeing the same post over and over.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

I'd like an extension that adds capability, rather than changing the core program.

(Not a dev, so work with me here please--I may not have the proper terminology but I think the intent is clear.)
I did put some code together today and made a small yet efficent extension, so far it's working well (just JPEG as of now though) on 3.2.2.

I am not quite sure I will support the 3.1 serie anymore though, I will see.

I do have just one picture (iOS) to do testing with, if you (or anybody else) can post here some other picture which needs to be rightly oriented before to be saved please do. I will be more than happy to pubblish the extension as soon as I am sure everything's all right. :)

Cool ... I would like to test your extension in my board (www.oberhitze-fans.de).
