My profile picture is sideways!

Sometimes photos taken with cell phones will upload to Moodle sideways, although they appear in the correct orientation on your phone and computer. 

You can easily fix this issue by opening your photo in your computer's default photo editing software, renaming and saving a copy of the picture.
