Rotating Images

When images are imported into a project, some may be displayed in an incorrect orientation, requiring you to rotate them. The tool strip provides a Rotate tool for rotating selected images counterclockwise. You can rotate images individually or select a group and rotate them all at once. You can also select images and quickly rotate them using keyboard shortcuts.

To rotate images individually
Do one of the following:
  • Select the image you want to rotate, then choose Photos > Rotate Counterclockwise, or press the Left Bracket ([) key, or Photos > Rotate Clockwise, or press the Right Bracket (]) key.

  • Select the Rotate tool in the tool strip, then click an image to rotate the image counterclockwise.

  • Select a group of images, then click the Rotate tool in the tool strip.
