How do you upload photos in ‘portrait’ instead of the default ‘landscape’ mode?

    When I upload my photos, they always upload in landscape style. If I have them saved as ‘portrait’ on my Mac they rotate themselves from their original ‘portrait’ style to ‘landscape’. I don’t know how to rotate them once they have been uploaded. Can anyone help?

    The blog I need help with is


    You cannot rotate uploaded images. What you may have saved as rotated in your computer applies to viewing it, not to the file itself. WP uploads and displays the actual file, so if you want a “portrait” image, you must edit it in an image editing application to make it so, and upload that version.

    And please paste the exact URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We usually need that to give a relevant answer.
