This is problem that has to do with the web broswer you are using. Sometimes your browser remembers old data instead of the new. In order to correct this, you need to empty your cache. Each browser has different instructions for "Emptying the Cache". I suggest you "Google": How to empty the cache on Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer......or whatever browser you are using. If this doesn't work, contact us: info@MyOwnLittleStory.com.
The reason that your photo is flipping has to do with the "coding" embedded in your photo. If you just rotate it on your screen, it won't change the coding. In order to recode the photo, you must first choose the EDIT function on your photo display. Click to rotate the photo, then be sure to SAVE the changes by clicking DONE or SAVE. If this doesn't solve the problem, please contact us: info@MyOwnLittleStory.com.
