    This may sound like a stupid question but then I am very new to photography.

    You see, I had taken a shot of some picture in potrait mode (tilting my digicam to the side). THen I found out I need the shot in landscape mode.

    How do I turn the potrait mode shot to landscape, without losing any part of the picture, or distorting the picture?

    You don't. Those modes are for point and shoot stuff. It basically just tells the camera what settings to use. There isn't really a way to change that on the computer, at least not that I know.

    If the photo you took was taken so that you now have a vertical photo (longer sides from bottom to top) and you want to present that very same photo in a horizontal style, you will definitely lose about half of what is in your frame, for you have to CUT (crop) it horizontal now. Else it will have to stay vertical and you have to go back and reshoot the scene in the horizontal mode.

    Vertical is often also called "Portrait mode".
    Horizontal is often also called "Landscape mode".
