Possible print orientations:

Portrait = Narrow at top and bottom, longer in length)

Landscape = Wider at top and bottom, shorter in length

Mirror = "Backward" reading, regardless of Portrait or Landscape


Option other than Portrait or Landscape might be inverted "Mirror" and that is not usually useful either unless one is trying to print a mirror image (which can be done).  Mirror can be applied to either a Portrait or Landscape item.


If the orientation is wrong no matter what you do, the issue might be the shape of the document / image does not actually fit correctly on the shape and size of the paper you are trying to use.


If the orientation is wrong, the software you are using may be misconfigured or missing a setting to correctly orient the document of image on the selected Media (paper).


What you can do - and how you accomplish it, depends on your printer Software, your Operating System, and the software you are using to view and submit the job to the printer.


Without any context (details on what you are doing, what you have tried, and how you are using the printer), we cannot know what to suggest.


You can, however, look for the solutions yourself.
