I have an antique shop and want to change pictures for my "Featured Vendor"; however, all my pictures show up sideways. I can't find how to flip them upright.

Using SB+? PHOTO UPLOAD IS SIDEWAYS:
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.

Did you try renaming you image and uploading it?

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.

Note: The work you've done has nothing to do with knowledge I have.

There is a rotate option in Sitebuilder Plus, but on many of these images it does not work as the code in the image overrides Sitebuilder. In those cases, themieleman is correct. You must save the image as a new one and upload it again and use the new image.
