Photo Blank Error/Iphone Photo Orientation

 

iPhone Photo Error

Last updated: 1/25/2021

Overview

FileTrac is aware of a photo error which is caused by iPhones from 2017 models on.  If you are experiencing a problem with blank photos being uploaded into FileTrac or photos that turn blank when attempting to bundle, we have a couple of solutions.   The newer iPhones have a camera setting for High Efficiency which is causing the error. 

 

You may have noticed that some users are able to view the same photos that are presented as blank to other users. A user with a laptop that has the software installed for "HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer" will be able to view these photos while others without this software will see a blank or all black photo.
