iPhone Photo Orientation

I've got a solution working for my phone in test. It's a pretty hacky (it's a word) solution but a relatively simple one. This has the added advantage of stripping the header information out of the file. That means it should also strip the geotagging (location information) out of the picture. This is a much better security for anyone posting pics here. I don't see why it would cause any issues with other pictures but I'm always nervous with these kinds of fixes. If eveyone can keep an eye out for any new issues and let me know right a way. We can always roll back.

I'm going to implement the change in Prod now. Let me know how it goes.

I generally don't use my phone for pictures, but if I notice anything I'll let you know. I've never had problems with photos from my camera, or from graphics I've made with Photoshop.

I don't mind that so much for the few times I take pictures with my phone. I used to use it a lot when I was running CNC machinery. I'd take a picture of the screen before I changed values in the program so I could go back to where I started, for instance. Or sometimes I'd take pictures of particularly interesting parts.

However I don't take "photographs" with my phone. Not things I really want to share or anything. I also tend to strip out metadata when I manipulate photographs in Photoshop or Krita.

What kind of CNC Machine did you run? I ran a lathe for a while. Did some break press and Pem nut work too (not CNC). I put myself through school working in a sheet metal shop.

I ran CNC Presses for about 20 years. I've run a pem nut and rivet machine too. I've never ran CNC lathes or mills though. There's a lot more call for that than Press operators but it doesn't really interest me. I'm sure I could learn it. I've run manual mills and lathes, but not really professionally. I have a general grasp of the theory, but no experience.

But I've got lots of machine shop experience. I've even done some laser/plasma CNC nesting and programming. I can weld (badly) and use pretty much all your basic fabrication tools. But I'm trying to get out of that. I'm too old for that shyte.

I've never worked at a place that had laser or plasma. That would have been fun.

Me too. My hands don't have the smooth action it takes to run a nice seam. I can glue stuff together, but I can't make it pretty. And I don't have a lot of the special knowledge about pre-heating and so forth. However I have welded up some pretty cool stuff over the years. It just takes me a while and there's going to be a lot of cleanup.

I can use AutoCAD, so I can draw things up to cut with a Laser or Plasma table. I have a couple projects right now that I'm slowly working on. I should be doing that right now. Lasers are cool. I'd love to have a small one in my garage. You can get little 4 foot by 5 foot tables for thin gage stuff. Even cooler are the table-top water jet machines. They look like big microwaves.

I miss having a shop around where I could just make whatever I wanted. Here's a little woodstove I built back in the day. The top door is an oven. Burning wood I can get it up to about 350º, but burning charcoal I can get it up to 500º

Crappy picture is the only one I have. It's buried under some crap in my garage right now. Nowhere to in install it here.

Of you can't weld but you can grind you are good in the end. LOL

I haven't touched AutoCad in 20+ years. My first major was Architecture, but the schools all still did hand drafting classes back then. I could have gone through learning disablity testing again and got help to get through, but I was young and stupid, I got mad and walked away. I went back later for comptuers instead.

I have seen demos of those and they are very cool.

It doesn't smoke stuff. It's an actual oven, separate from the fire box. If I had it to do again I'd do it different. Typically ovens are on the side of the firebox, but I never realized why until I made that one. That way you can cook on the top too. The top of this one doesn't get hot enough really to cook on.

It has some neat features, but to be honest it wouldn't be economical to sell. I put a ton of work into it. I designed it for a small space like a trailer or tiny home. I think it would run you out of a small space like that if you tried to bake something in the oven! But it is designed to be really clean (it's fully air-tight) and it has an internal ash tray you can pull out and empty. I would do the draft vents a lot different if I were to do it again. It was a consequence of the equipment I had at my disposal. They work, but they also don't flow quite enough air. That's why I had to add the big one on the front.

Still, I hope to install it somewhere someday.

The difference between a wood oven and smoker is temperature. A skilled stick burner could hold that thing at 225. I use a Traeger, I'm old and lazy :lol:

If no smoke reaches the meat, then it's not a smoker it's an oven. Traegers are good for lazy people. I have a propane smoker that gets used about once a year. Although I should try smoking some chickens one of these days. Or a turkey breast. It's double walled and will hold about 375º on a thermostat. We usually smoke sausage at around 240º but it would cook a chicken just fine at 300º I think.

This thing is tiny. You might find it difficult to get a drill inside the oven!

Nah, it is what it is because that's what I designed. As I said, I'd do it different if I did it again. Unlikely, since I don't have access to a shop anymore.
