And the rotating image problem...

Usually you can type about anything in google and find a good answer, IF you can sort through all the junk and find the real answer.  As Patsy found, searching for the Scofield Bible notes you can find them all online.  When searching for rotating Blogger images, I got lots of results pointing to rotating header images when what I wanted was why images that seem correctly oriented on my computer, come out sideways on Blogger like Betty's tree.  I also got several results concerning a problem with blogger rotating images that had dates from several years ago. I knew these would not be helpful now as Blogger has changed much in the last 4 years.  Then some of the results were just plain wrong.  One said, yes you can rotate the image but it is so complicated that only experienced computer gurus would be able to make it work.  That is just stupid.

Anyway, here is the answer to Betty as to why her photos are wrong ways up and how to fix it.

Some cameras have an auto-rotate feature that conflicts with some other software including blogger editors.

Log in to picasaweb.com with your blogger username and password. This is where uploaded images are hosted. Find the album for your blog and open it. Find the picture that is rotated and open it. In the corner you will find an edit button. Rotate the image then save it. 

When you go there, picasaweb.com, you can login and see all the pictures you have on your blog in folders or albums.  Find the one you want and edit it.  I knew Google had my photos store somewhere like this, but I had never looked at them before.  You can even upload photos there if you want.

The reason Patsy can rotate pictures and make it stick is that she always uses Picasa as her photo editor.

This would be a good picture to add...
