I have had this problem before as well and use a mac.  I deleted the picture from active rain, went back into the picture on the mac, rotated it a few times, saved it, then went back into active rain and uploaded it again.  It was fine after that.  It is annoying when that happens but that was a quick fix for me.

Take your photographs in the landscape mode. I then use iPiccy.com to edit the photographs.

That happens when using an iPhone or iPad camera. I can correct this by rotating the image one turn then uploading

When I have encountered this, I found to be be an issue with the 'viewer' in use was rotating the image. The original image was 90 degrees off.. To resolve, I used the pict editor found in the WIN OS. Using only the rotate feature.

Done correctly, your observable will be the original 'viewer' will show the image incorrectly.

Be aware, there could be some elf'n magic taking place in AR. If that is the case, all bets are OFF.

Always take your photos in landscape mode. They work better on most devices and look better on blog posts, and websites, etc.  If you take your portrait images and upload them to youtube creative to turn them into a video you are going to get those black sections on both sides of the image in the video. That won't happen with landscape in most cases. Before you take a photo, think about all the content creation you will be doing with one photo. It has a long life with loads of tactics.. again, landscape mode will work the best across all those platforms.

Kathryn Acciari - If that happens to me, I use an external editor and save 'straight' image as some other name and upload.

Yes, this is frustrating at times, and I really understand that.

Perhaps you can edit the rotation flag so it won't rotate.
