    I really like the camera on my 3a.

    But I took some pictures this week and when I posted them to Facebook, many were upside down. I've never had this happen before with prior phones or cameras.

    The only cure was downloading a context menu program (I'm using Windows) called JPEG Autorotate. I applied this to the original photos, edited and saved new copies, and these were right-side-up (applying the autorotate to the original edits did not fix the problem).

    Sort of minor as an irritant, but an irritant nonetheless.

    How can I prevent this in the future? I swear I was holding the phone the same way (landscape mode, with the phone's power and volume buttons on the top of the phone, and the "button" to take the picture on the right side). But other phones and cameras I've used, the resultant picture has always been correctly oriented when I've posted it to FB.

    There are many posts on this topic - related to the phone, and in general - online.

    Two from Reddit:
    1. https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel...s_upside_down/
    2. https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel...otation_issue/

    First one makes the suggestion of turning HDR+ off then to auto again. My HDR+ was off already, and I toggled it a few times and will see what happens.

    Second one suggests it's related to the accelerometer and having screen rotation set to on - which I do.
