Photo rotation problems in Android Lollipop 5.0 – how to fix

28 views. By in Latest Videos, Marketing, Media, People, Technology, Vlogs. November 20, 2014.

Geoff from geoffmobile.com talks about his problems with the Android Lollipop 5.0 Photo gallery app from Google, and provides a solution to fix the issue.

QuickPic play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alensw.PicFolder&hl=en

( a very good photo gallery software that allows rotation from the gallery listing page)

The issue is that the Google provided Photo Gallery software (integrated into Google Plus) in Android 5.0 Lollipop does not allow rotation of photos from the gallery listing page. Instead you have to do a complicated sequence of steps to edit the photo, rotate it within the editor, save the photo, and then delete the original photo. Much too complicated for this very common operation.

I strongly suggest getting the QuickPic app linked above as a replacement or alternative if you need to rotate photos often.

In this vlog I also discuss the new Android 5.0 Lollipop feature to display your notifications on the lock screen and why I tried this feature but ended up disabling it (showing the notifications on the lock screen interfered with my flow of accomplishing tasks with my smartphone).

I also mention a cool tidbit of advice from actor Bill Murray about staying relaxed. The full interview with Bill Murray is here:

Lyrics (English translation):

(創聖のアクエリオン Sōsei no Akuerion)

I remember sitting with you, underneath a tree of life
We listened to everything that cries, all the creatures there on the day the world began

Looking at everything that I lost, and almost everything I loved
I hold them all tightly in my arms, Wondering where I am, so please tell me where to go
Although the answers you seek, lie hidden in the sun
If I hadn’t met you my life, would have been in the darkness for ever
In my wings are the powers of immortality
But by meeting you, my whole life has changed. You give light to me, hope to me, strength
into my life

All this time these twelve thousand years I know AISHITERU (i es shape the loo)
Eight thousand years from the time that I met you, my love is stronger than before
One hundred million and two thousand years from now AISHITERU (i es shape that loo)
Want you to know, since you came in my life
every day every night, you give light into the darkest sky

All this time these twelve thousand years
I know AISHITERU (i es shape the loo)
Eight thousand years from the time that I met you, my love grows stronger than before
One hundred million and two thousand years from now

AISHITERU (i es shape that loo)
I want you to know, since you came in my life
every day every night, you give light into the darkest sky
Oooh ooohhhh
