This is how you can easily change the orientation. 

 

Step 1:

To change the orientation of all the photos, click the "All" button.  All button  That is what I did in the scenario below.  

If you prefer to select only one photo to rotate, you can simply hover your mouse over top of it.  Three icons will appear on the photo: rotate counter clock-wise 90 degrees, rotate clock-wise 90 degrees, and an "x" to delete the scanned photo.

If you want to select a few, but not all photos, hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard and click the photos you want to rotate.  

Quick Tip: Using the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking photos will also let you remove photos that you don't want rotated.  

 

Step 2:

Click the "Right" button (90 degree rotation per click) to rotate the photos clock-wise.  rotate right button  I clicked this button twice to get my photos upright.

Quick Tip:  Don't worry about playing around with the rotate button.  You can click the Reset button to bring you back to the start before you rotated.reset button

The Reset button will NOT remove the captions.

Photos are now upright on your screen and can be saved in this better viewing orientation.  If you would like to make a slight correction, see the article on how to fine rotate a scanned photo.
