  1. What if the “options” DOESN’T have the option to Rotate Left or Rotate Right?
    I just uploaded a photo that was normally oriented (landscape) in my desktop’s folder, but appears 90 degrees clockwise (portrait) on my timeline.
    When I click “Options,” my only options are:

    Get Link
    Embed Post
    Enter Fullscreen

    • Hi Jim, you will get the option to rotate only if you have uploaded the picture, not the one you are tagged in. Secondly you don’t have to open picture in another window, just click on the picture and on the same window under “Options” you will get option to rotate.
