That looks ok, except for some reason I am seeing the image rotated on my laptop Firefox, but it shows correctly--with the bottom of the cup at the bottom of the image--on my phone. Surreal. Off to check Safari....
the issue you're experiencing is described here: ... ientation/

firefox implemented a css property that devs can use to make the browser properly orient images like yours.
i've just added it to the forum, so it should show up the right way in desktop firefox now.

unfortunately, i don't think any other desktop browsers have implemented that css property or an equivalent.

on the bright side, i've tweaked the phpBB image resizing plugin i wrote to rotate images like yours so that all browsers will display them properly.
however, if someone uploads an affected image that is sufficiently small, then my plugin won't be triggered (no need to resize an image if it's already small), and in that case it also won't get auto-rotated.

if you want to help test, try uploading that same image again. my plugin should auto-rotate it next time.

Testing with another unretouched phone image of the satellite office tea setup and a highly cropped little bee...

The original blue cup is now upright, as are the two test shots--one another straight-up iPhone image, and one a tightly cropped little bee who is appropriately upright per Firefox. Now to check Safari....and all are correctly upright. Looking good!
