Rotating Photos

Rotating photos within the File Browser is as easy as clicking one button. However, when you rotate photos within the File Browser itself, it’s only really rotating the thumbnail. This is handy, because when you’re sorting photos and you have some photos that have portrait orientation (they’re tall rather than wide), you want to be able to see them upright to make a sorting judgment call, but you have a separate decision to make if you want the actual photo rotated—not just the thumbnail. Here’s how to do both.

Rotating Thumbnails

Rotating a thumbnail is a total no-brainer: just click on the photo you want to rotate, then click on the circular rotation icons in the File Browser’s Options Bar. The left icon rotates counterclockwise; the right icon rotates clockwise. You can also use the shortcut Control-[ (Left Bracket key) to rotate counterclockwise, and Control-] (Right Bracket key) to rotate clockwise. When you rotate a thumbnail, a warning dialog will appear saying you’re not rotating the actual image—just click OK. A little rotate icon will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the thumbnail.
