I have been using Catch Evolution for 4 or 5 years now, and all was ok until last August or so. Since then, any vertical photos I would add to a blog post, appear in horizontal format if viewed on a mobile phone (especially, iPhone). I was expecting that it may be something temporary and will be fixed with updates, but the problem is stil there, and I do not know what is causing the issue and how to solve it.
When viewed on a PC, all is ok, photos do not display correctly only on some mobile devices, can it be something with the theme compatibility? (as mentioned, for the first 3 years, there was no issue, even on iPhone posts were appearing correctly).

I will check (my photos are not necessarily taken by iphone, and I would need to google a way to remove it without Photoshop, and test if it works), but it does leave me wondering:
1. I indeed started leving the photo title at some point when uploading, as I’ve read this adds security in a sense that your photo cannot be that easily “stolen” (would still have a record of the original file name somewhere);
2. Does it mean that that removing all the metadata means your photos are “free” for anyone to take from your website, as there is no link to the original file anymore (meaning, you have to choose between right display and at least minimal IP protection)?
I am not an IT person, and may be misunderstansing the concept of metadata, but that what is sounds like…
