Use the Handheld Camera Effect
In Lumion 12 and older versions, you can't switch between portrait and landscape format, or enter your own resolutions, but you can use this little trick to rotate the Photo or Clip so it is rendered in portrait format. Here's how to do it for a Photo:
2.1: Add a Handheld Camera Effect to your Photo or Clip:
2.2: Set the Angle slider to 90 degrees and render the Photo:
Here's what the finished rendering looks like:
2.3: When it's done rendering, rotate it 90 degrees in an image editor or with an online image service (search for 'online rotate image' on Google) to make it look like a proper portrait image:
TIP: Need to move the camera using this Effect? Temporarily disable - turn Off, the 2-Point Perspective Effect.
For example, if you need to move the camera in the horizontal direction when the camera is tilted 90 degrees (vertical for a normal non-rotated view) to increase or decrease areas such as the sky above your subject.
Once you are done adjusting the camera view, simply enable the 2-Point Perspective Effect again.
