HELP! My pictures appear upside down.

My pictures are upside down, or sideways when I upload them into the system to my new classified listing, but when I look at them in windows explorer on my computer, they look fine! What gives?

The Problem:

When I upload my picture into Second Rider classifieds for my listing, it appears upside down or sideways, in spite of the fact that in windows explorer when I preview the picture, it seems fine.

The Solution:

Before uploading your picture, follow these steps. Navigate to its location in windows explorer, and right click on it. Hover over “Open with” and then select “Paint”. After the picture is opened in Paint, confirm that the orientation is how you want it to be. If it is NOT, then click on “Rotate” and select the appropriate rotate direction from the drop down menu. 

Once you have confirmed that all looks as it should, click “File – Save As” and save a copy of your picture to your computer. This copied image is what you will need to upload to your listing. Repeat the steps for each photo that appears improperly on your listing.

As always, please let us know if you continue to have technical difficulties by emailing us at

Happy listing!
