it's likely they show this as that was the format they were uploaded in. I'm not sure you will be able to change this in your google settings, only in the photo exif info before you upload to google.
It may be possible to do so via the picasa interface, but I don't know for sure. You can have a look at picasa here -

Every one is Welcome to join the Druids and assorted friends of Lyall Bay for the yearly and important event.
 We will be respecting the sun God who hopefully will be bringing to us a wonderfully summer.
 The even starts a 08.30am by the roundabout with Queens Drive and Lyall Parade.with some chanting and sacrifice before heading to the waters of Cook Straits for a well earned swim.
 This is followed by a well earned breaki at Maranui.
 What ever the weather it will still go ahead.
