Step 1: Open your Photo Editor and go to the Edit menu, then choose Rotate.

Step 2: The Rotate icons look like two arrows pointing opposite directions. Flip your image Clockwise or Counter Clockwise until you get the results you want.

Sometimes you'll find a horizontal flip will be a more balanced image, or you may just want to experiment with different orientations on your canvas.
