And another Claro Walnut project done

Funny, in 27 years, I have had about 5 jobs where customers wanted walnut. Since last Fall, this is the 5th walnut job I've done. Not only that, but they have all been Claro Walnut, pretty spendy stuff, and gorgeous.

I don't know why, but this picture keeps getting turned sideways when I post it. Sorry. I can't figure out why.

Gorgeous, Mark - beautiful work! Walnut is one of my favorite woods and about 90% of what I build is Walnut but I haven't worked with any Claro Walnut recently. Let's just hope nobody comes along in 10 years and decides that it needs to be painted!

On the photo rotation this might help - Here are some photo posting tips if you’re taking photos with your phone or iPad – the best way for proper orientation is to shoot landscape (widescreen). Rotate your phone or iPad CCW for proper orientation. If you want your photos to be portrait then open the photo in a viewer on your computer, rotate it to the orientation you want, then save it in that orientation. It will be correct when you upload it to the servers here. If you’re shooting video please shoot widescreen like our monitors, not portrait.

David, Yep, that's what I had done. Shot the photos on my camera. I had, at first, loaded them straight off the camera onto the upload link, and the first was sideways. So I erased my thread, logged out, downloaded the pics to my computer, rotated that one pic, then logged in again and uploaded. The upload showed in the correct configuration, but when I actually posted, it went on its side. Ah, computers. There are many pluses about them, but I don't really want to spend a lot of time learning the nuances, I guess.

Were you prompted to save the photo at that point, after you rotated it? If not then it didn't 'stick'. Rotate it, move to another photo and you'll be asked to save your changes before leaving that photo.

fyi, if you are using Windows, Windows will automatically rotate a pix when you 'open' it in any number of system viewers.
it looks right on your screen, but the file is not changed.
when uploaded, the source file is still sideways...


I use the freeware IrfanView - crops, rotates, etc and it's display is 'true orientation' -

save whatever edits you make to the same file name and it's golden.
very handy for fixing cell phone pix.

Google photos allows you to rotate them also

I just tried this before I posted this and sure enough, it worked.

There's a icon at the far right of the tool bar .."more options" and rotate is one of them. I clicked on a vertically oriented photo and BAM it went horizontal and in the correct orientation. Now, I don't know if it will post in that orientaion... ? So, I'll post it and we'll see....


YUP, it worked! Man, that couldn't have been easier!

I removed the photo because it was "off topic" to this thread.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Woodnthings, that does sound easy. If I were able to edit this post, I would give it a try. There used to be an option to edit, but no more. And I can't figure out a way to do it.
