Landlords of a rental have the right to get access to a rental upon reasonable notice to a tenant (usually 24 hours) for assorted purposes such as making repairs, doing maintenance, showing the unit for sale and simply to inspect it. During such times landlords typically take photographs of the property's condition for future reference.

If the landlord took photographs simply of the unit you are renting on the internet showing your furniture but no depiction of you, then nothing was done legally wrong. In retrospect you should have been advised of what was going to be done beforehand simply as a courtesy.
