How do I readjust my photos?

All of my photos were submitted in the correct position, but when the ad was posted, they turned 90 degrees to the left and I can't fix it. Any advice?

That link doesnt appear to go to what you meant it to......

Common issue though.....pull up the image in your choice of image editing software, rotate it around and back to the proper orientation you want it to be and then save it. Even if it appears correct to start with. Something in the EXIF data is wacky and I dont now the technical aspect but doing as I describe has cured the issue everytime I have had the issue.....and for others I have informed as well.

Thanks, Greg. I ended up having to do what you suggested and edit each photo. Not sure if Astromart can fix it since it's a pretty annoying glitch.

Fairly certain the issue doesnt lie with AM.....I have had the same issue with other sites as well.

That's strange. I wonder if it is related to the type of device used or maybe something else. I emailed those pictures to myself from my phone to my laptop. Maybe something weird happens during that process?
