I'm hoping this is an acceptable place to bring this up, but for whatever reason my avatar picture keeps displaying upside down.  I'm not sure if it appears this way only to me or to everyone... Either way, I've already tried re-uploading it and the original image file is not upside down itself. How do I fix this? :P

I thought that was a sign of distress, like flying a flag upside down :)

banished like a Vision of the night."

At this point it might as well be haha but I have no idea why it's doing that...

Try reloading the original image upside down as it appears to you.  ???  Hey, it can't hurt.  Maybe it'll come out right for the rest of us?  ;D

But Rick, magnifying glasses don't turn things upside down - unless they do in the Northern Hemisphere?

You have to use the magnifying glass whilst standing on your head.  :P

I like vintage bikeworks suggestion...if you can't figure it out trick it into conformance!  ;D

Hum? some where I've seen a lens that inverts every thing  and then the second lens turns it right side up , Must be a telescope.

  Camera lens and human eye lens project the image upside down. The brain rights the image for humans and in photography one must stand on ones head to view.  ;)
