When uploading a picture it keeps turning sideways. How do I keep it standing up?

Everytime colleagues (who didn't make the PDF) want to insert a picture, it changes sideways.

I made a button using JavaScript:

event.target.buttonImportIcon();

They need to use pictures received by email.

What can I change in the settings (or what do I tell my colleagues) to make the pictures stand up straight?

Thank you!

Thanks, this will work already! Is it possible to rotate this automatically though? If the picture itself changes...

The page was rotated at some time in its creation. You may have to remake it e.g. copy paste to a new unrotated page.

Meaning I have to remake the entire file? Not just the button?

Thank you.

You can either rotate the image before importing it into the field, or afterwards.

Doing it afterwards is more complicated as it requires using a script, or changing the field's properties.

If you want to allow your users to do it more easily you can use this (paid-for) tool I've developed: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat -- Apply Image Fields Toolkit

Hi,

Thank you. As it's already in its right position, rotating it before doesn't seem to help. How can it be done afterwards, using a script?

(Sorry, my company doesn't allow me to buy/install software).

You'll need to change the button's rotation property. For example:

this.getField("Image1").rotation = 90;

I meant remake either the file or the page. You can't fix this by further rotations. However, try67 may have a better solution!
