Sigil for children's picture book

Hello,
When I do my ebook with the Sigil, I can't make my pictures to look horizontal.
To clearly understand what I need, please take a look a picture in the attachment.
I know how to make it on my Kindle device, just change orientation but I want to make it in my ebook to be always horizontal.
Will appreciate for the advice.

Best

Users control orientation of the device. Never the Author.

Auto-rotation on some devices is a WAR unless the user disables, so simply rotating the image is a problem there.

Sigil relies on 3rd party (external ) apps to manipulate image rotation.
Calibre's Editor chose ti include the most basic of image tools: Rotate and resize.

Another reason I use BOTH. Each has features I prefer

@Gmes This is not a Sigil issue.

Download the latest Kindle Publishing Guidelines and read chapter 12 (Creating Fixed-Layout Books Without Pop-Ups). You'll most likely have to use:

Code:
<meta name="orientation-lock" content="landscape"/>
