    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    If you don't have any other image editing software, you can rotate pictures with Windows Paint.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    don't even need that, you can rotate them before you even open them up in the viewing software. Right click and rotate clockwise or counter clockwise.

    what do you mean it will cost that much to fix? we picked him cause his bid was half of everyone elses. to fix it will cost as much as what we paid to install it.

    10-4...........I lost an attic job because I was 1 K more than the other guy. After the homeowner had to paint and repaint her ceiling a couple of times, I was called to find out what was wrong. (She had already called her lawyer because the other company didn't or wouldn't fix the problem).

    Long story short....I charged her 2 k to fix all that was wrong. It took us twice as long to re-do everything that was screwed up.

    I call that a win. I love it when I lose a job to a hack and then get called back to fix their mistakes.

    I like the exposed junction under the unit, electrician they were not. Overall it looked like a new(er) unit with a crappy tin job. Not many owners would climb up and inspect the work as long as it blows cold/hot air out. Sad they paid money for that.

    This seems to be happening all the time these days, especially with all the newbies getting into the geothermal portion of the HVAC industry.
