hey - i learned something new!

I am old enough to remember when phones where actually used to make calls - and no one needed an instruction book that was 300 pages long to know how to use one ;)

This bad boy still works:

any smart people know how to get around this?

this is a test - i opened it renamed and resaved - lets see if that works
FWIW, the issue is that whenever you take iphone photos with the camera app oriented wrong, it helpfully hides this from you by saving orientation info in the EXIF data and displaying it based on that data. Any program that doesn't read the EXIF data will display it wrong.

If you open the file in pretty much any image editing program that displays it correctly and just re-save it (if you need to change it somehow to get it to save, you can rotate it around 360), it'll keep the correct orientation. Preview works on Mac.

I am in awe.

Nice trees, and they look pretty realistic. I wonder how all the existing trees will look next to the new DF trees.

pretty basic, but you cannot beat the price - wish they had them without snow

anyway figured i would let folks know in case they have a Big Lots nearby
