Welcome to the IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the IBM Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Consider EXIF orientation data in uploaded photos

Photos taken using the photo app on mobile devices typically contain the orientation as EXIF data. The photo is not saved in the expected orientation by the photo app. Instead, the software has to read and consider the EXIF data to display the photo in the correct orientation (portrait or landscape).

When uploading a photo taking in portrait orientation to IBM Connections Files, the thumbnail image as well as the File preview will display the photo in landscape. Tested with IBM Connections 6 CR2 and IBM Connections Cloud.
