    I've never had this problem, so I can't be sure, but it could have to do with the size of the photo. I think LHC caps it at 150 KB, and if it's over that, it will automatically shrink it/wash out the colours. Or maybe the vertical dimension is too large, so it's being rotated. Maybe try cropping it and see if it works?

    I always resize my photos before uploading, but I use a computer. If you need to, there are probably apps that can do that for you on a phone. You can't edit them within LHC.

    I used to have the rotating problem and it was so annoying! What I found works, is to crop the photo, even slightly if it doesn't actually need cropping. I'm on my phone so I use either my photo gallery app or a photo editing app I have. The edited photos never get rotated. I don't know WHY it works, but it does.

    Thanks Amaryllis and Lapis! Cropping did the trick!

    The reason that pictures get rotated, is that the phone is "meant to" be held sideways for taking pictures. While the phone is mostly smart enought to show the picture correct, they will show up in the wrong direction on several sites, because the photos are saved are saved sideways. Editing them will help them get saved correctly. I hope that you can understand my explanation.
