Why does the program rotate my images?

Hello again everyone!

Just wanting to inquire why the image object decides to rotate my landscape images to portrait when they are brought into WWB?

I am able to use the rotate tool to fix it, but the program oddly doesn't allow rotated images to have their object-fit property changed, so I can't do that! Frustrating!

The application does not rotate your images automatically.
I think that the source images has the wrong orientation.
When you view the image in Windows then it will sometimes automatically display the image rotated based on the camera settings, however the actual image data is not affected.
WWB does not modify your image in any way.

Windows rotates the image (for display only).
WWB does not rotate or modify the image, it will be displayed/published "AS IS".
