What's with your camera, Judy?

Continuing the discussion from judy excavates:

So, two things, but really one, because the first is just silly, but worth mentioning:

  1. Why some photos upside down? And more importantly,
  2. Does your camera name images with a UUID? Is that customizable, or part of the OS or app you use?


  1. because i don’t take the five seconds to open the photo editor. i just throw the image into the post, otherwise i know i won’t. sorry, i keep thinking i can fix it in post, but maybe i can’t edit images on the Space or rotate the image using Discourse. hmm.

  2. i don’t think so… i thought it used a timestamp, but it clearly doesn’t. i thought the long filename was being assigned to me by the Discourse uploader or by the Digital Ocean Space somehow.

Oh, maybe…

Doesn’t rename mine. I’m thinking your camera app does that, by maybe the upload is doing something.

Oh, it would be nice to rotate photos and stuff; that’s an underutilized WordPress feature, it has a relatively robust image editor, built-in.
