Please rotate my photo, as I cannot find any tools to do so.

There is no software on wikitree to turn your photo around.

This has happened to me as well. The following is what I had to do.

You can try saving the photo upside down on your hard drive. Then upload it to wikitree upside down and hopefully it will show up on the site, the right way up. This did work for me!!

This is a common problem with many web sites, not just Wikitree. The best solution is to fix your photos on your computer before uploading them. Rotate the photo so it looks correct in your photo editing software. Then, make any small change to the image -- crop it, adjust the color or brightness a small amount, then save it. When you upload the image, it will appear correct.

An explanation is here:
