Chapter 9. Pictures > To rotate a picture and its box using the Rotation tool:

To rotate a picture and its box using the Rotation tool:

1.
Choose the Rotation tool.

2.
Click on a picture box.

3.
Press to create an axis point, pause briefly for the picture to redraw (if desired), drag to reposition the cursor away from the axis point to create a lever , then drag the lever clockwise or counterclockwise.

Tip

Hold down Shift while dragging with the Rotation tool to rotate an item to a 0°, 45°, or 90° angle.

Take Your Pick

With Delayed Item Dragging: Show Contents chosen in Edit menu > Preferences > Application > Interactive folder tab, if you move or rotate an item that's behind other items, its contents will be visible as you move it. If Live Refresh is chosen instead, you'll see the item as it actually looks in its layer as you move it. You won't see a lever as you rotate an object in Live Refresh mode, but it works just the same.
