How to Use

Formatting of photos

Minimize photos: The maximum file size is 7.5 MB. On the Internet, there is a wide range of software, which can minimize pictures. Also, pre-installed programs like Microsoft Paint now offer an appropriate option.

Why are some photos upside down? 

Photos, which were taken with an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad, sometimes appear upside down after uploading. These photos are taken when the photo sensor is upside down. In this case the information about the orientation of the camera is stored in the photo EXIF information. This information is then used by the device to display the photo properly. EXIF information is information that is stored by many cameras together with the photo. They contain information for example about the model camera, exposure time or coordinates. The EXIF information from Apple devices will be deleted when you upload photos in order to protect privacy. Our website can not determine how the picture should be orientated and the photo appears upside down.
The solution is to rotate the photo with a photo editing software before uploading, or to take the photo when the volume buttons are facing down.
