When uploading images to a "page", sometimes the image is rotated 90 degrees. I can't find a "rotate" tool to properly orientate the image while in "page" editing mode.
Hi Erik Newman! I don't believe that there is a rotate tool in the rich content editor. I would do this by rotating the image prior to bringing it into canvas or going into the HTML editor and adding the proper coding there to rotate the image. I hope this help!
Hello there, Erik Newman Thank You for posting your question. I would agree only with the first part of Belinda Stutzman's suggestion. It is best to do your image manipulation outside of Canvas first, and then upload it into Canvas. The most common instance of rotated images in Canvas I've seen is due to the orientation of a cell phone or mobile device when taking a photo. Sometimes, it seems like the photo button to take a picture doesn't keep the orientation the way you had intended. What I've found, at least on an iPhone, is to use one of the volume buttons on the side of the phone (as crazy as that sounds) to take a photo, and then the orientation usually is correct when uploaded into Canvas (or even if the photo is later saved to my computer's hard drive).
As you can see, some people do suggest ways to do this via HTML only (with one line of code), but in my own testing in a Canvas page, that code gets stripped from the RCE (Rich Content Editor) as soon as I save the page. So, it may not be possible without some additional help from CSS and/or JS.
I'm going to share your question with the Canvas Developers group here in the Canvas Community in hopes that your question will get some additional exposure. Maybe someone with more knowledge that me will be able to figure out a way to do this. Good luck!

Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
The problem is that the image IS right-side up before uploading it. Canvas is screwing it up by rotating 270 degrees.
I agree with Sheila. This is an ongoing problem that must be fixed. I'm trying to embed several images into a page, and they are all displaying horizontally - landscape mode - even when the image file is originally in portrait mode.
