Default Picture is rotated 90 degrees left

Manage to upload my picture into my comment to post my picture, but it always is rotated 90 degrees to the left. It is correct in the Windows 10 Pictures file. How do I get it upright in my post?

I have a Mac so I can't help you but I can still see the quilt just fine. And I love it. Those poor people who lost their only child

it has to do with how you are taking the photo. I phone perhaps?

if you right click on a QB pic that is not right side up, and choose open in a new tab, it will appear right side up. unfortunately, the QB post upload function does not automatically rotate a pic like your electronics may. i have found two ways to avoid this.
1. determine which way is right side up for your device's camera and take the picture in that direction.
2. after taking your picture, use Paint or other editing software, to rotate the pic and then save it in that direction.

Thanks for asking this question! I always have that problem when I take pics with my I Phone. Now I know why.

On my computer, I right click on the picture, click on "view image" and the picture turns right side up; unless the picture was taken sideways in the first place.
I've right clicked on numerous pictures to get them to turn right side up. That feels very soothing to me to see them right side up.

Right click on the sideways image, then click on "Open image in new tab" Click on the tab that shows along the top, and the photo will show upright. Sure beats the twisted neck while trying to look. I learned this from one of the regulars who now post in The Victorian Sweatshop. I don't know anything about how to change what happened with the original post.
