Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This application lets you rotate photos. Sometimes, when holding your iPhone at a strange angle and taking a photo, the orientation of the photo is incorrect. This app lets you correct the rotation of the photo, so you can view it correctly, or upload it to a site such as facebook the correct way up.
The powerful Free rotation function allows arbitrary rotation, scaling and positioning with single and multi-touch gestures.
1. Select the photo from your camera roll or photo library
2. Rotate, mirror or manipulate the photo until it looks the way you want it to.
3. Save the rotated photo. This will save to the "Camera Roll" (for devices with a camera) or "Saved Photos" (for devices without a camera) as a new photo.
Photo Rotate supports the following operations:
*Rotate 90 degrees Clockwise
*Rotate 90 degrees Anticlockwise
*Rotate 180 degrees
*Free manipulation by manually positioning. rotating and scaling (zoom in or out) with finger gestures
* Works in both portrait or landscape orientation
What's New in Version 2.1.2
Added cancel buttons
The big problem with this app is that the photo is saved on the camera roll and not in the album from which it was chosen. Is there a fix? So it is of value only if you are viewing or showing someone a photo in the album or camera roll.
If you have a MAC with iPhoto, you can rotate the photo and save it. Then when you sync your iPhone or iPad to your computer the rotated version is saved in the album or wherever you rotated it.
Thus the app is of limited value.
Good app, does exactly what I was looking for- flip photos 90° left or right. Why rate 1 star? People do that for the stupidest reasons... Just because you didnt like an update and you're butthurt about it doesn't mean the app is still worth 1 star.
Works great on iPad
I use this on my iPad when I receive a photo attached to an email. If the photo is sideways or upside down I can correct it with this app. When I rotate a photo it is saved as a new photo. It is just what I needed!
