My images seem to be rotated when I upload them. How can I avoid that?
Some cameras record the orientation of the camera into the exif data, and some software evaluates that exif field if present. Geograph just takes the picture as stored, without bothering with the orientation. That means users whose software auto-rotates will need to rotate their image before uploading. If that is the case, it should be obvious from step 3 of the submission process as that shows the picture as it will show on Geograph.

If Geograph supported auto-rotation, it would lead to unexpected results for people whose software doesn't auto-rotate, so we can't win.
