I have used the "thumbnail" field to restrict the size of the image but many of my images, taken in portrait aspect, are automatically rotated 90 degrees onto their side. Anyway to stop this from happening?

Hello Jacob, 

My name is Lovell and I am with QuickBase Care. Thank you for your question today. In this case QuickBase doesn't actually rotate the image. It may actually be a web browser issue if that is what you are experiencing. Try an alternate browser/or edit the pictures orientation before uploading to counteract what you are experiencing.

Hi QuickBase tools I went to the link posted above. Tried to rotate an image and it didn't rotate. On the pop-up window, there is a Close button that does not close the popup. I am using Chrome. Not sure if it's user error or browser but thought you'd like to know.

hi Jim,
sorry for this not being as clear as it should be...

after you view the record you just added, if you edit it and choose a degrees to rotate, save the record and try again it will rotate it...just click refresh to see.
I just did one myself
