Arched with tapered ends, carbon autoclaved. and say 3mm thick at the ends, 8mm at the centre, super smooth, rounded edges, and with top face coated in ptfe adhesive sheet/tape. 28 inches x 9, would be my perfect board. NO stupid hand holes. If such a thing existed under 300 quid I would buy. These things are used for a lifetime and are important. But they dont - so:


Not having that I have a similar sized and shaped plywood board, ends tapered down by machining and sanding. Which was varnished and waxed. Its is now stripped of wax and ptfe covered, and works extremely well!

What would be the advantage of this material? The board could be thinner with the same strength? It looks pretty specialist. Where would one get it?


Yes ...thinner for the same strength.

What's with all the exotic material for a slide board? Aluminum works 3/16 or 1/4 inch. Hand holes are not needed, just drill a 1/2 inch hole along the edge and slip a velcro loop thru it. Really simple!

Aluminum is just as slick as the slide boards out there. Now if you are talking bare ass, good luck with that. drunk2

Add that tape that I have, and every material becomes way more slick and transfers are easier with less damage.

You camera, whatever that is, can be set to mark which it the right side up. If you do that and you take a pic sideways, then the browser, or image editing program will display it the way you intended it.

If its incorrectly or isnt marked, it displays longest edge across the top. I suspect you mac has saved it incorrectly.

Use a PC...

Or better still turn that OFF in camera so it displays as you took it instead of trying to outthink you...

Are you using photos app and exporting from there with the correct settings? Do you look at the exported file or the original in Photos? If exporting uncheck any of the metadata options.

There is a file size limit so try large size and medium quality to get a bigger image with smaller file. You can also open in preview app and reduce the file size there if you need to.

Don't think there's anything need fixing with this forum. All my photo's upload correctly on Windows. Try using a different image manipulation program. Opening the image in IrfanView shows it the correct way up! czy

You have AUTO ROTATE set inside your camera. Its not useful, it causes all these types of issues. Turn that OFF.

Because some programs and some software use that tag to "correct" the orientation and others dont. What you need to do is to turn that feature off. Then every program displays it correctly as taken. And marks the image and saves it correctly. And if your image manipulation software turns it say 90 degrees, through choice it stays as you decide... The forum is behaving exactly as it should. It is displaying what you actually took. (Orientation - Right top)

It was taken on an IPHONE 8 and is marked as landscape top right with the imge saved the opposite way up.. Incorrectly. What you should do is not have this on at all and allow the camera to manually rotate the photo so that is the way up you wish, as it saves the image to the card. So blame the phone manufacturer. They are trying to do something clever, which may work as long as you stick to your apple products.

Yes, with that info, I can bomb his bathroom to an accuracy of approx 1 meter or better. :lol:


The problem is your apple phone. It relies on the exif data for correct orientation in SOME photos. And not all browsers, or programs understand that.
In other words, some of your images are saved the wromg way up... And apple relies on the exif data to get a program or browser to fix that.

Heres your problem: https://www.geek.com/apple/why-iphone-p ... t-1602306/

When receiving emailed photos from your parents, you’ll often run into upside-down or rotated images. You’ll also happen across some rotated images when transferring them from your iPhone to your Windows PC. It’s more a nuisance than a scourge, but removing a nuisance from your life is much better than dealing with it forever. Photos taken with an iPhone have been flipping for a while now, ever since iOS 5, but there’s a reason for that — and there’s also a relatively easy fix.
Why has my iPhone forsaken me?

The issue originated back when iOS 5 was released, because the operating system introduced the culprit: the ability to snap a photo with the phone’s volume up button. Basically, the camera’s sensor doesn’t realize when you rotate the phone to take a picture. Supposedly, your phone doesn’t correct the orientation itself because doing so would make it harder for the phone to take another picture immediately after the last. Instead, the iPhone writes the orientation info to the EXIF data of the image.

The reason why the images flip when you email them or transfer them to certain operating systems is because not all environments acknowledge EXIF data. This means that the orientation tags aren’t being acknowledged.
How do I deal with my terribly difficult life?

Luckily, there’s an easy fix that intercepts the problem before it begins. Sure, you can take an extra couple of seconds per photo and flip them once they’re on your computer — or you can simply take the photo with the volume buttons oriented on the bottom of your phone rather than the top. Rather than hit the volume up shutter with your right hand’s pointer finger, you’ll now have to take it with your left hand’s thumb. It’s a little awkward, but it saves time.

Another solution is to use a camera app that records the image information once it is taken, such as Camera+, though there are other apps if you develop a preference. If you have to fix a bunch of photos, the best way is with a desktop image editor — select all, rotate, save. From now on, though, flip the phone before you take the picture.

EXIF rotation is the tag used by almost all current image software so it is rare to find an incorrect rotation. Simply importing into photos app mac or windows 10 and exporting should fix it rather than a direct upload from the phone. Depending upon the age of the forum software you might find some that correctly handl the tag. I don't think that you can turn it off on the phone, it expects up to date software to handle the tag.

Its a stupid bug in Apples phone software. And only some browsers do support it. The forum software does not display images thats the browsers job.

I might add that my nikon D810 camera CAN do that too. But the first thing I did was check it was OFF. Why on earth anyone would enable it beats me. Its just asking for trouble. In any case exif data has no place on the web. It allows you to be tracked to 1 meter! Just to begin with.

Its not a puzzle. Theres TWO ways to save an image when you take a photo.
1. The right way around on the memory stick. As in what you see/took. Thats the CORRECT way to do this. It should be saved as taken, landscape or portrait.

2. The WRONG way around, saved as portrait instead of landscape on the stick. And with a bit of data added, telling the computer or web browser which way up it was meant to be. And thats the stupid way to do it that apple uses at times when you turn your phone...
Not all programs use this, so sideways images result... Also apple often marks this INCORRECTLY! So even if the browser uses this added data, it will turn it and display it incorrectly.

Read the stuff I posted. Its a well known apple bug.

No metadata, or at least no exif information in your image. So it displays the way the file is written. From left to right in lines of data as written... Its a stupid apple cockup thing.
