Using the Rotate Tool

The Rotate Tool  in our Edit tools gives you the ability to rotate an image clockwise, counter clockwise, flip the image vertically or horizontally. You can also use the tool to straighten your image or even create a mirror effect! 

Step 1: Open your Photo Editor and go to the Edit menu, then choose Rotate.

Step 2: The Rotate icons look like two arrows pointing opposite directions. Flip your image Clockwise or Counter Clockwise until you get the results you want. 

Step 3: To the right of that you'll see the Flip options. You can flip your canvas horizontal or vertical without actually moving the canvas itself.

Pro Tip: Sometimes you'll find a horizontal flip will be a more balanced image, or you may just want to experiment with different orientations on your canvas.

Step 4: Move the Straighten slider around to straighten out the image if you find it's a little crooked or you'd like a slightly different aspect.

Pro Tip: Keep in mind using the Straighten tool will usually also crop some of your image down, so experiment with it until you get the results you're looking for.

Step 5: Click Apply to save your changes.

Step 6: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
