I have an object I want to model, so I took some pictures of it. Top, Bottom, Left, Right, Front, and the Back. I set the first one, the shot of the Left side and it flips it! Is this due to something I don't understand about Lightwave/3D modeling yet, or is this not normal? (and my flood of simple questions begins!)

It flips the image if you look through the bottom, left, or front views. This is because if you have one side view for example, looking from the left would be flipped compared to looking from the right. To fix this you can just change the aspect ratio to a negative number. ie, if it's 1 change it to -1.
