If you post pictures that look normal on your phone or tablet, but after upload here seem to post upside down or sideways, the issue is likely that the images were taken on a mobile device that auto rotates content to always appear right side up.

Some options:

1. Always take the picture in portrait orientation or:

2. After taking picture hold your device upright and then edit the picture, resaving it with a new name.

The forum software can't discern what the intended orientation was so it defaults to the actual orientation of the image (regardless of how your device auto rotated it to appear correctly in your local view)

I don't know how to fix photos that come up oriented incorrectly, but I did take a photography lesson recently, from a guy who knew how to make them come out correctly the first time, on iPhones.
Those have the camera in a corner of the back of the phone, and must have that corner as an "upper" corner. If a photo is taken with the camera in a lower corner the orientation will be wrong. To make this work in portrait, it is a normal orientation. In Landscape, tilt to the left.
I hope this helps, even a little.

Correcting wrong photo orientation

If a photo posts with incorrect orientation it can be corrected by doing the following:
Note the orientation of the posted photo and which direction it needs to be rotated and how much (90 CW or CCW or 180)
Open the photo file on your PC with a photo editing program
Rotate the photo as noted above
Save As a new named photo
Open the post and Edit then Go Advanced
Scroll down to "Manage Attachments" - Upload the new file name to the post and confirm the correct orientation using Preview
"Remove" the incorrectly oriented photo file from the post
Save your changes

I agree, that does seem to work mostly. Pilou also advised me to do that, and she knows quite a bit about this stuff as well as Covid.
