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.
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?
Was my response helpful? If yes, please mark it as the ‘Best Answer.’ Learn how here.

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!]
