My Avatar of my Dobe's is turned wrong

When I resized my picture of my two pups, and saved as my avatar, they were sitting at the door in the picture, heads up. Now it looks like they are pinned to the horizontal, a neat trick if they could do this. What have I done wrong to put my pups in such a stressful position?
Thanks!

Not sure, it looks like things may have went a little sideways.

This happens because the forum software is unable to read the EXIF data that is imprinted on the photo when you take it.

The EXIF data holds a lot of information, which includes orientation of your photo. Many programs are able to read this, and that is why you see it displayed upright in some places, but many others still are not.

This is a good article that explains all of this: https://www.howtogeek.com/254830/why...ectly-rotated/

The gist of it is, the phones are designed to work like a digital camera. Holding your digital camera flat, in landscape, is the 'base line'. Developers used this 'base line' in the following way for mobile devices:

Apple users: hold your phone with your VOLUME buttons DOWN.

Android users: hold your phone with your HOME button to the RIGHT.

Don't click on it

When you click on the avatar the site takes you to the users' profile picture. I didn't change that one.
