rotate photo

Hi. Today, I tried to add an interior photo to our "Google My Business" listing. The photo on my computer seems to be in the correct orientation, but when I uploaded it, it rotated by 90 degrees. I don't see any way to correct it, and can't find any suggestions in this forum or through any Google searches.

 

Help!

 

Thanks.

Hi LLT
That does seem odd.  
Couple of questions that come to mind.

- Was the image originally taken at the 90° rotated or at the angle on your computer?  If the rotated, perhaps use a different package to rotate the image and save it as a new file with that new orientation.  Pixlr online is a free tool that will let you do that easily.

- Could this be related to the image dimensions?  as in, is the system squeezing a landscape pic into a portrait spot?

It was originally taken in "portrait" orientation on a Samsung phone (a bunch of photos of our office door). When saved on my desktop computer, the thumbnail images were all sideways.  I edited one photo in MS Paint, and subsequently that one thumbnail appears rotated in the correct orientation.

 

I will take your advice and try rotating it with a different program, and see what happens. [UPDATE: Using Pixlr worked!]

 

Thanks!
