    You can rotate them. Tap edit and you will see a symbol to rotate by quarter segments, top left.

    Sorry, that wasn't very clear. There is symbol like a box with elongated sides and arrows at the edges! It is with the other symbols on the left. Hope that is clear

    sorry. no such symbol. there is a box with an arrow pointing upwards and when i tap it a bunch of symbols appears none is for editing or for rotation only for sharing copy duplicate and so on. when i open photoes i see + at the left side top, albums in the middle and search sign and edit at the top right.wehn i tap edit i get + at the left and cancel at the right. if i tap + a dialoge box asks me if i want to enter a new name for this ablum.

    Yes, I see what you mean. I have been just trying with some more of mine. It doesn't work if the photo has already been edited.

    I have been pondering about this. The only thing I can come up with is to delete the upside down photos
    on the Mini and try re-downloading them.

    Photos that were synced to the iPad via iTunes can't be removed from the iPad itself. It's necessary to sync the iPad with iTunes once more, deselect these photos, so they will disappear from the iDevice.

    Try editing these images on your PC, sync them to your iPad once more. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

    Hello - you've already received some great advice - first, how are you transferring photos from your PC - I'm assuming via an iTunes sync - correct? If so, then their orientation on the PC might be the issue as suggested already.

    Second, let me show you how to rotate images on the iPad w/ the Photo App - now I'm using iOS 10, so you'll need to realize that this app is often updated by Apple between iOS upgrades. If you bring up the Camera Roll and select an image - the initial step is to select the editing tool icon (first image below); then pick the 'crop & rotation' tool (second image); and finally, use the rotation icon (third pic) - Dave :)
