I am so frustrated. I can't get a picture to turn. I know this sounds simple and there should be a button that rotates the image but the website builder I am using doesn't do that. So I saved the picture in my computer. Rotated the picture before I saved it to my computer and somehow the website still has the picture sideways. I am really frustrated. Any suggestions? Has this ever happened to you? Did you leave it like that?

The way I understand it is you have saved the rotated image in you computer. Have you updated or upload the correct image in your website? Also you have to update your HTML page to use the new image. Use your website builder or a suitable page editor. good luck.

I saved the updated image, yet when I went into the website after the picture was saved, it loads sideways. Thanks for your help, I am sure I will be cussing later. LOL

Sometimes what we are seeing in our browser are cache copies of a site. These are local copies in our ISP side for quick reload which sometimes take time to be updated. Try Ctrl+Reload to get the page directly from your server. To avoid this sort of error, it would be better to upload the edited file with a different name ... say if the original is image.gif add b to it imageB.gif, for you to know which file is really being displayed.

I haven't tried that yet. Thanks for the advice. I will resave it with a different name. That may trick my computer into making the picture straight.

You cavewomen are so clumsy! It is actually funny that you brought this up because I, like a nut not thinking, was functioning on automatic and rotated my camera not too long ago. The only problem with that was that I was shooting video at the time! I did eventually figure out how to rotate it though even though someone who is supposed to be a filmmaker said it could not be done.
