Dumb question... I posted a portrait photo and it switched to landscape then could not find a way to turn it upright. Please see and tell me how to fix it. Thanking you in advance for your attention.

Question- Why do only Premium Members get this feature?? This is a Free Website. Those that want to Contribute or (Pay) are welcome to do so. To help Support the site. Why are those that don't pay, not allowed any feature?? ~ Brandy

Lol. You really do like that side of me. You don't really know that side. Perhaps a little.

I completely understand each website is different. (I will say this, any feature can be placed in the system) Used by all. Choosing who can use these features is set up by the Admin. I will probably remove my comment soon. Thank you for letting me share. ~ Brandy

I know about this, more than you may realize. Things cost money. (Thank you for removing that comment, by the way) My Website is far from perfect. Many here already know that I am an Admin of a Poetry Website. I am perfectly content with how I post here, with no features. I am able to do what I want at my site. ~ Brandy

Certain things cost money and disk space is one of those things. Still, there are a lot of free features on PoetrySoup.

Ikr? I've spent $40 at least 4 or 5 times already. Where are my credits? ;)

Brilliant - this will be a great improvement - I could rarely get photos from the internet to work and often skipped adding a picture because I didn’t want the hassle.

I have learned over the years, and I was shown this by another poet. By placing where the image came from upon your poem, it is really the best thing to do. Like on the bottom of my poem here at my website. As you see, the image is by- julia trotti. :) I really like her photography.

Hi Panagiota, no that would still be breaking copyright. But if you have a photo you’ve taken, or a drawing, then you can upload that. Some photos are available from sites like wiki media on commons licenses or you can download images from sites like snapstock and unsplash which are available for all to use without a licence.

Nina, I don't get it. Photos online or cartoons are also copyrighted, how can I freely LIFt one and claim it on the Soup as my own? anyone can lift one, is it really kosher or right to do so? Panagiota Romios Lost, Panagiota
