    I have spent the last hour trying to create a post with pictures for Mountain View High School in Orem, Utah. The newly uploaded pictures wont rotate when editing. I keep getting an error that says they won't load even though they are uploaded in the media section. Can you help me rotate 90 degrees the pictures I have just uploaded?

    I've had the same issue as Jordan. The photo rotated itself during the upload and is in my gallery.
    When I try to edit-rotate it, the image doesn't appear and instead gives me an error message.

    Hi Pete,

    Thanks for reaching out, we are happy to help! I reached out via email, but I will post the work-around here as well! When you upload a file that is either too big or too small, it may not allow you to edit it (rotate it) in wordpress. Our developers are aware of this issue and are working to correct it! In the meantime, to rotate your photo, scale it first by a point or two. Once you scale it, your preview for the image will load and you will be able to rotate the photo!

    Thanks again!
