    My main pic is something I took on my iPhone and e-mailed to myself. I took it in the normal upright position with my phone, but when I uploaded it on here, for some reason it rotated sideways. Anyone know why?

    You mean you took the picture in portrait, not landscape right? The image orientation info embedded in the picture might have gotten corrupt when you emailed it to yourself. Did it download to your computer when you synced with itunes? Maybe use the sync copy instead.

    Easy. Stand on your head before taking the pic.

    You'll have to rotate the image on your iPhone or copy the image to a computer and use a graphics program to rotate it. There are plenty of free ones. If you're using Windows, you can rotate the image through the image previewer. It's very easy.

    ^ In my experience iPhone pics often come out corrupted so they won't save once rotated through Windoze image previewer. I have to use something else to do it, usually Paint.

    There really ought to be a way to rotate them on RJ! Oh, well, I'm planning on taking new photos soon, to update my progress.

    A year later and still no simple solution for this (says the sideways man with his new dog).
