Loved the article in pen world. It was really great to see!! The blanks you make are still second to none. Love the pens too. Well done!!

Those are some fantastic pens!

As for the photo rotation, this is something that has bugged me too. My understanding is that in many programs rotation is done using meta-data, rather than actually reordering the pixels in the jpeg. This is very low "cost" from a processing view. However, when we upload to IAP the meta-data is lost (I think), so the rotation goes back to the default. Some programs like Paint or Photoshop will actually reorder the pixels when you rotate, so the orientation is consistent. I use photoshop on my phone to crop the photos that I upload, this solves the rotation problem, killing two birds with one stone. There are other software tools that can be used too. I figured I would share this, because it happens on here quite a bit and can be frustrating to folks...

Thanks Ron! Yeah I make a pen (or more) just about every day. Glad you liked the article. That was fun to be a part of.
