Somethimes, when I take pictures for my blog, I turned my phone on its side to get a wider shot. This meant the picture was on its side when I initially load it in MS photo editor. I rotate the picture so it looks right, but when I upload it to the blog, it rotates back to its original orientation (on it's side). The same thing happened when I post the pictures in the photo folder in a yahoo group.
Any idea why this is happening & how to prevent it?

Did you save it after rotating it? Then upload the pic to the web.

Yes. saved it after rotating, & when I open the picture in IE or MS photo editor, it's oriented the right way (landscape).
But the blog shows the same picture in portrait mode.

I don't know anything about blogs so forgive a basic question. Do blogs (specifically your blog) permit landscape mode or all or pics automatically in portrait

Daft suggestion – try uploading the pics without rotating them, and see what happens. I have heard that some cameras include the orientation of the camera as part of the metadata in the image file.

Some blog software makes you re-orient the photograph in the editor section. Which blog site are you using?

I figured out how to fix the pictures. I rotated them in the Gimp freeware graphics software, which apparently permanently rotates the pictures, as opposed to MS Photo Editor, which does not.
& to answer the other questions, I am using the Blogger/BlogSpot site for my blog, but it doesn't give any photo orientation or editing capability when doing an upload.
Thanks for the help & suggestions.
