Rotating Images

Uploading photos that are flipped or rotated can be fixed in WordPress.  This can be due to a photo being taken with the camera rotated or often from a problem in WordPress with photos taken by iPad cameras, especially with selfies.

Here is how.

After uploading an image it appears upside down in the media library.

Image Uploaded in wrong rotation in Insert Media screen, arrow to edit link
Image Uploaded in wrong rotation.

Click the Edit link that appears when the image is selected.

This open an editor when you can flip, rotate or crop the image.

Edit Image screen, arrow to Flip button

In this case I flip the image and Save.

Edit Image Screen, arrow to Save

That is better.

Insert media screen with fixed image
