I’ve noticed that a lot of pictures get submitted that need to be rotated. Viewing a project sideways is difficult and somewhat annoying.

Most of the time, the image has been rotated either clockwise or counter-clockwise by the user. But when it is uploaded, it’s in the original state again. Why is that?

Programs like Picasa have powerful image manipulating tools that allow you to crop, resize rotate and otherwise enhance your images. With Picasa however, the change only exists within the program, the original file has not actually been modified. This is done so you can reverse any changes that have been made to the picture. The changes must be committed to the image file to see the result outisde of that software package.

Again, in the case of Picasa, make the desired changes to the photo in the editor. When done, right click the image and choose Save. Once the image has been saved, upload to LJ.

There are many software packages out there, and each will vary with regards to menus and features. But if you are experiencing a problem with images as described above, then look into committing the changes to the original file.
