DataCAD ignores the Orientation flag property that digital cameras and photo editors add to bitmaps. So, you'll have to rotate the image on disk before inserting it.

A Cheap Trick (which I believe Clay came up with long ago) is to insert/reference the bitmap file into a blank AEC file, save it, and then xref THAT file into your main file. This allows you to rotate it to your hearts content. An extra step, but you don't have to play around in Affinity Photo / Photoshop / etc. with your photo, AND you can scale it to whatever size you need, too!
