Rotating Photos (It’s Different in CS)

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 with a 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 thumnail you want to rotate, then click on one of the circular rotation icons (circled in red here) in the File Browser’s Toolbar. The left icon rotates counterclockwise, the right icon rotates clockwise. You can also use the shortcut Command-[ (PC: Control-[) to rotate counterclockwise, and Command-] (PC: Control-]) to rotate clockwise. When you rotate a thumbnail, a Rotate icon appears in its lower right-hand corner.
