Default How to download an avatar that's the right way up!

BEVS very kindly turned the last one round for me but I don't understand why this happens. I took a photo of Lemon Bear wearing her favourite football team's colours. I used the same photo as my profile pic on FB with no problems, but downloaded it to here from my Samsung phone and she's all askew! Tried turning the photo on my phone and then downloaded to BE and she's still askew. What am I doing wrong?

Those who know me well know that technology and I don't get on well. So explain it in very, very simple terms!!!!!!!!!! Please!

Turn your screen a quarter clockwise. Job done.

Thank you so much. I can understand that instruction. Slight difficulty with balance issues but I'll sort with strategically placed books

Lemon Bear is resting after an arduous outfit change.

So I have had a look at trying to turn the image myself by right clicking on it and pressing various options to no avail. So then I had the bright idea of turning my camera phone 45° anti-clockwise, taking the photo and then downloading it here (or is that an upload???????). This had the hilarious (IMHO) result of making Lemon Bear stand on her head. A-ha me thought, if I turn the camera through 180° and take a photo she should be the right way up. And so boys and girls, it all ended happily ever after

When I muck around with an image in 'Paint' I sometimes use the rotate feature but never remember which of horizontal or vertical to use, let alone how many degrees. It's always 'trial and error' until I get there.
