Hello. I am facing another hurdle on my way to completing my app. When I select an image in the gallery, it displays it with a 90 degrees rotation in the image component. this happens on 2 of my testing devices ( samsung android 12 and LG android 8) and not the others. After doing some searching I found that this is common behavior with those phones. i saw a few posts in the community about it but they all were related to taking a picture with the camera component and not selecting one with the image picker.
I tried some things to work around it. The only solution I could find was using a switch and when the switch was on if your devices rotated the pictures it will flip it 90 degrees back to normal using taifun image extension.
@TIMAI2 yes preferably. Unfortunately the switch gets in the way of the user experience and crowds an already crowded interface. Also there are other reasons for that. For example when the picture picked is from any other folder than the gallery ( messenger pics, downloads, ect....) the problem isn't there but the picture gets flipped any way with this solution.
That might work! Indeed one thing I noticed is that if the picture selected was edited in any way prior to being picked the rotation issue did not happen. I just couldn't figure out how to edit the selected picture with the code prior to or while using the image picker @TIMAI2
Yeah I read about that in the Media docs which added to my confusion as to why the images were getting flipped. Am I missing something? @TIMAI2
Oh I think you mean I can edit it because it is a copy? If so what I was trying to say is I couldn't find any MIT app inventor component or block that would edit a image picker picked picture. @TIMAI2
