Why was the photo for the project I posted upside down? I checked my photos and they were right side up before I posted them.

There are numerous threads on this. Did you post directly from an iPhone?

I do not have an iPhone and do not post from my phone. I always edit on a computer to get best picture.

Many people have reported that editing on your phone first before posting helps with the problem.

Pics are upside down (or on a side) because the iPhone is upside down or on a side when picture is taken.
But iPhone is trying to be smart – it stores the orientation with the picture. Smart enough applications read this information and present the picture in correct orientation. Old software (like this forum) cannot do this. So it is author ‘obligation’ (if he cares about neck problems of readers) to correct the picture orientation with additional software. Usually the picture cropping and/or resizing cures the problem(and necks strains), but I will not bet on any iPhone software – I just do not know.
Do a little test with your software once to be sure…

Take your pictures with the volume buttons down. In other words, 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

Edit your pics, save them, then reload. They will load properly.

Like they said. numerous threads on here, including one I posted.
