Quick no fuss scrapbook

First off I hate how blogger rotates my pictures. The only one oriented properly is the first one. They are rotated properly before I upload them. Then it rotates them sideways after I upload them and I can't fix it. All the help things say to rotate them before you upload. So I decided to rotate it sideways before in hopes blogger will rotate it to the proper direction, HA! That didn't work either. So I can't find a way to get blogger to stop rotating my images or a solution to fix it. I even went back and saved them again oriented properly and no luck. Then I saved them smaller with a width of 400 and still no go. So look at these sideways LOL! They all need to rotate left, that is the command I put into the HTML but it apparently doesn't like that command :) It would be a good one though! I tried changing width and height but of course, it just squashed it. I messed with the code as much as I could think of! I tried the style="image-orientation: 90deg;" and no go either. If you have a solution please email me, I suspect it has to do with the columns I have in order to accommodate my lighthouse background. So with that being said...

This is the scrapbook my friend's daughter and I made for her upcoming trip to Japan. We only had a few embellishments so this was very paper oriented! The whole thing cost less that $30.00 too, amazing. We did this is roughly three hours, we went back over it later and stamped on a few pages real quick. All she has to do is add pictures and titles (which me made with the Printmaster program but I didn't take pictures of, sorry!) and a little journaling. I just don't have time to spend three hours on one page layout any more and learned this technique at Archiver's. It was an 8 x 8 album and I converted it to 12 x 12 and added one more picture mat per page. This helps so you can use 4 x 6 prints and not have to cut them into shapes or tiny sizes, all in the name of quick and non-complicated!
