Why when my original photo is vertical does it display it horizontally once I upload it from my phone?

Was the original photo originally horizontal? If a photo is flipped from horizontal to vertical but not "saved", any uploads will be horizontal as is the default file.

Hi Deanna,

It's likely that your photo is horizontal, but your local system is automatically changing the orientation when you view it. I'm afraid when you upload it here, we don't have any automatic viewing changes like that. You'll need to manually edit the photo and reupload it.
