iPad, many mobile devices and some cameras include code that recognizes gravity so orients the photo relative to gravity.  Zillow unfortunately doesn't recognize this code and doesn't have a rotation tool at this time.

So, you have two options:

1.  Put them on a computer that doesn't recognize gravity, rotate them and then upload.

2.  Figure out what "bottom" is on your iPad when taking a horizontal photo and retake all your photos in that orientation.   It appears that vertical photos always show sideways without manually rotating (as described in #1).

3.  (okay, so I can't count), send Zillow an Email requesting they get a rotation option on their site as this is becoming more and more of a problem with more and more photo devices recognizing gravity.    I've put it on their list but they need to hear from more than me.

I would edit them on the iPad to be side ways first and see if when you upload them if they do not turn right side up. Also I think zillow has editing tools as well.
