I uploaded a photo, for my profile, but it is sideways.  How do I rotate it? It is correct on computer....

Can I just delete it?

I was having problems with sideway photos too, and here is what is working for me.  It may be more trouble than it's worth for you, but here's what I have been doing.

I take a photo of an old photo on my iphone, then I use the App on my phone, called Photo Editor (it's free).  I make sure the image is pointing the right way, then I put a Vignette on the photo, and save it.  (A Vignette is a dark or light circle or oval around the subject in the photograph.)

Then I use my phone to download the edited photo to whatever profile I'm putting it on.  

If you're using a computer with a camera card, then I'm sure that there are photo editors you could use on that too, I'm just not familiar with them.

I really hope this helps!

If you are using a PC, then Irfanview ( http://www.irfanview.com/ ) is free, easy to use, and while it doesnt have all the bells and whistles of a photo editing studio, you can easily rotate, or resize pictures.

To remove the picture from your profile, click on the picture. Then scroll down until you see "People & Things in the Image:" and then select "REMOVE from image" next to your name. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Save Changes To Image Details".
