The weird photo crop on the iNaturalist app

I am new to iNaturalist and I think it’s pretty cool so far.

However, my photos always get cropped when I upload them and there doesn’t seem to be a way to click to see the full photo. Am I doing something wrong or do I have to consider this weird crop when you I take a photo?

welcome to the forum :)

Can you please post some screenshots of what you’re referring to so we can get a clearer sense of the issue


An extreme portrait or landscape photo will be displayed as a square in the grid. With other words if the bird is not exactly in the centre, it will be cut off from view. Thus only blue sky. The full photo will be shown but reduced to a maximum of 2024.
