My Mother wanted a nice family photo for her wall last Christmas so I dug one out and sent it to her in an 8x10 size. The original photo is a beach shot of my family when my youngest son got married. This photo is in a landscape format but my Mother now wants it in a portriat format to match the other family photos. The image I have is digital and saved in a .jpg format. Can what I need done be accomplished with appropriate software and if so what do I need?

I would even gladly pay someone to do this for me so I do not need to purchase and learn a new program for this one time use. Please get back to me if you can help out on either the software recommendation or do the actual transformation from landsacape to potrait while maintaining the 8x10 size.

I would just tell mom to get over it.

That said, is there enough "unimportant" space on the sides to crop it down to portrait format? If not, then you'll need to add dead space above and below the photo.

You can do it for free on Paint, your phone (native photos apps should be able to do this), or plenty of websites that will do it for free.

You should not pay anyone or any software to crop an image.

The picture likely have people on left and right and if kept you picture likely have to shrink to same frame in Portrait.
So you have to have "letterbox" top and bottom in any Portrait frame or squeeze sides cause whole thing looking very "wrong."

yes, many free software will do this.

You'll probably have to crop the photo and use a cloning tool to extend the sky upward and the ground downward.

If you can't extend the image vertically in an aesthetically pleasing way, consider adding information, text and/or graphics above and bellow.

a tittle above: "Sunova Beach - 1903"

names bellow: Auntie Grizelda, Crazy Uncle Rudolph, Eric Von Zipper, the Bunker twins, Rex the Wonder Dog

Photo is in daylight, outside, and on the beach in the Dominican Republic. If you ignore my ugly mug, the rest of the people look good.
