iphone pictures help

This is the closet place on this forum to ask this question, so will do. I know someone could lend some advice. I'm about to sell my home myself, and I've taken several pic with my iphone 6, being in the upright position. Now when I preview on pc, all my pics are laying on the side, so that viewers would have to tilt their head to see them all. I'm unsure if the website I am going to place these photos, will have a way to autocorrect this, or turn them. Hate to think I'll have to reshoot these 70 pictues to correct this? OMG! I thought perhaps I could have corrected this with windows photo viewer, but apparently not. Any advice? Thx DM

Take a look at the free Irfanview, this has a batch processing option that will possibly allow you to set up a one click solution to your issue but can also handle most formats and basic operations

IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

While I'd recommend following Barman's advice first and foremost I'm wondering why you can't rotate the photos using Windows Photo Viewer. If you right click on one of the files and select Properties from the Context Menu then take a look to see if the Read Only option is checked in the Attributes section at the bottom.

update

I download app and installed. By just viewing pics in the app, they are upright and normal. I'm thinking they will be displayed properly at the website I will upload to. I also did look at the read only box and is unchecked. What I did do, is selected "ALL" pics, then rotated to the correct position. Closed windows viewer, reopened and they are now correct. I think it is solved. Will leave this open until I get the pics uploaded. Thank you, DM

The metatdata produced by most digital cameras, which is stored in the picture file, describes whether the shot was taken in landscape or portrait mode.

Any "decent" image viewer software should recognize the presence of this metadata and use it, to properly auto-rotate if necessary when viewing the image (including when presenting a thumbnail). This doesn't mean that all image viewer software will behave in this way, but it's not your fault if Photo Viewer doesn't. I assure you that most 3rd-party software (free or paid) WILL almost certainly present your images properly.

As to what happens on a web site with these pictures, again... it may vary. Your best bet is to confirm with one of each portrait and landscape that the web page shows the images correctly.

Worst case, as has been suggested, is to simply use a decent free-viewer with modest editing capability (and rotate 90/180 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise is "standard" modest editing capability) and rotate the batch which needs rotating.

Note that GOOD viewer/editor programs can do this as "lossless rotation" (perhaps this is a setting option), which means there will be ZERO LOSS OF IMAGE QUALITY in the resulting rotated image. Otherwise, your original high-quality JPG images (which are already compressed by the camera) will be recompressed into new JPG as part of the rotation, thus imputing a loss of image quality (due to the recompress to a new lossy JPG using certain "image quality" vs. "file size" parameters of an already lossy JPG compressed original). If you simply opt for "LOSSLESS ROTATION", then the rotation is literally pure mathematics in the existing pixel placement in the image, as if the picture was taken in the rotated orientation in the first place. ZERO LOSS OF IMAGE QUALITY IN THE ROTATED RESULT.

The reason I suggested Irfanview was that it has a very good lossless JPG rotation algorithm built in . I always shoot RAW and everything goes through Lightroom CC but I still keep Irfanview around for those odd occasions when I have to work with other peoples JPG images
