    I've got a slideshow that looks fine everywhere else, but it appears that the photos are either rotated or upside down entirely when the site displays on an iPad.

    I'm having a similar problem with my product photos being rotated on the ipad.

    Follow this link and notice that on a computer the pictures are oriented correctly, but on Ipad/ipda mini they are not.

    Anyone know why??

    I regenerated all the thumbnails on my website, but it didn't change the ipad picture orientation.

    Thanks for the help!

    nghizas - this thread is for the Slideshow plugin, but perhaps it is in fact a WordPress problem?

    I ended up going with another plugin for the slideshow on the page I indicated, but am still using Stefan Boonstra's Slideshow for the homepage slider, which doesn't seem to have any problems. Do you think it has to do with the way it's called (conditional) or certain styling requirements (e.g. static height/width of parent container)?

    DURRRRRRRRR

    Sorry, guys. Turns out the owner of the site had uploaded these images himself and during the course of my research, I discovered that iOS devices have this thing where they don't rotate images themselves. So... Mr. Site Owner had uploaded these (unrotated) images from his iDevice, and WordPress thumbnails, computers, and Android devices all went "Hey! Let's put this the right way up..." while iDevices were going "Looks good to me!"

    So everything I was looking at made it seem as if the images were correctly oriented to begin with when that was not the case. I'm sure things will do better once I download and re-upload the offending photos from my computer.

    Sorry again.
