I am one in the minority of those that can see not only the desktop is 
flipped, the Inkscape (the featured app) UI is flipped and also Máirín 
is using the wrong hand (no discrimination against left hand users :) ) 
but I also understand *why* the image was flipped... aligned to right, 
the tablet should NOT face outside of the page.

Flipping was her conscious decision for a proper layout and I believe I 
saw at least another notice of the flipping.

As is, there are only a few available decisions:
- leave the image as is, and expect a few people will notice and some of 
them complain;
- re-take the photo, with a correctly oriented tablet;
- drop the banner and replace with something else.
Un-flipping the photo is not an option, it would make for a bad layout.
