I have the images stored normally on my desktop and flash drive but certain new images are importing sideways when I select them for the 'photo gallery' option. The 'rotate image left or right' isn't highlighted on the photo gallery 'image settings' box to the right of the page, but I can rotate single imported images no problem. I have NEVER had this problem wth Sitebuilder before, what's going on with Photo Gallery interface?

You'll need to upload the image to another ap to change the file name to gif, png, jpg etc. Lunapic or Paint will work. After doing that, you can import the file to your homestead file manager.
These are images generally taken on an iPhone and code is added for orienting the image. This code messes with Sitebuilder. The above suggestion strips that extra code and you read the new image to your page.
SB+ user:
Upload your image using the Lunapic ap. You'll be able to edit the size, shape, border and even add text. It's a flexible tool that'll enable you to produce images like you never thought of or thought possible. You can rename the image using the appropriate file name. Experiment with you images in question. You'll need to study but it'll pay off.

themieleman is correct. If you look in the file manager you will see those images appearing sideways. These images will need to be edited in a program outside of Homestead, then re-uploaded.
