You need to make a feature request at Area51 for that.

I realize that some phpbb members/developers do not see this as a phpbb issue that needs fixin', but again I add my name to the chorus of phpbb board admins that don't care which piece (phpbb code, plupload code, ImageMagic code, extension code) is broken or who's fault it is - we just want a solution.
Telling 2000 forum members never to rotate their smart phones and tablets (and in some cases, digital cameras) is not the solution.
In most cases, a "forum" is no longer a "bulletin board" full of text. Modern forums are image-heavy, and server space is cheaper, so more forums are now allowing attached images. The cameras/phones/tablets produce huge files, needed for printing, but we sure don't want those giant files in our servers for monitor display (so the plupload "quality" attribute is critical.) Improperly rotated thumbnails from attachments are making phpbb look bad. None of the members know about the 3rd party libraries and code that is used along with phpbb - they simply see it as phpbb developers unable to solve the issue. It will appear as phpbb's flaw until solved.
There are some very good software developers here, both within the phpbb core team, and other developers adding extensions. I'm an old dinosaur programmer and a newbie at php, or I would dive in to the code. I'll bet someone here could fix the issue in an hour of programming. Maybe 3Di already is, but once the issue is resolved, it really should be in the phpbb core code, not in an extension.
If you use version v2.3.6 of plupload it should work. phpBB ships with v2.3.3 I've been using v2.3.6 without any apparent issues and the edit in plupload.php still works.fruttama wrote: ↑Sat Mar 31, 2018 10:09 amSorry for reupping. I have been using this method with satisfaction for quite some time, but apparently, 3.2.2 broke it. As matter of fact, every picture gets uploaded to the forum, is shown as panorama, either if i use "preserve_headers: true" or "preserve_hearders: false". Of course, since last update i have been started to receive complaints from my users. Is there a way to solve this? Am I the only one getting this?
(please note: I have already applied the hotfix for 3.2.2 regarding pictures).
A lot of photo's are made in portrait with DSLRs, there are even grips specific for making portrait photos. Ofcourse you need to know when you should use it, but saying everything made with a DSLR is landscape is simply wrong.Mick wrote: ↑Sun Sep 09, 2018 7:34 amI realise theres an EXIF issue here but can i ask a question? When you pick up a nice shiny new digital SLR camera you naturally hold it landscape because thats where the holding on bits are. The world is in landscape so what possesses people using phones to constantly take portrait images of cars and mountains and houses? It makes no sense to me.
