Issue: Canvas - Images are rotated

Issue/Question

  • When I upload images to Canvas, they are rotated. How do I rotate them back?
  • My images in Canvas are rotated 90 degrees. How do I fix them?

Environment

  • Oregon State University
  • Canvas

Cause/Explanation

While your images may display correctly on your mobile device or computer, they may actually be rotated. Once you upload them to Canvas, Canvas does not provide a way to rotate them to the correct orientation.

Resolution

  1. Re-open the image in an image editor on your computer (such as Paint in Windows).
  2. Adjust the image rotation and re-save the file.
  3. Re-upload the file to Canvas.
