We have all had moments when we have taken pictures in a landscape mode when they should have been in portrait and vice versa. Or maybe, someone sent you a scanned image in landscape mode, when you really needed it to be in portrait. Either way, the only solution to the problem is to simply rotate the image either in clockwise or anti-clockwise direction in order to get the desired image. One way out is to use an image editor app like Photoshop or simply stay on your device and use the Phots app. While the Photos app offers fair few basic editing tools, the tool to rotate the image is conveniently hidden away from the eyes of everyone.
To rotate images on iOS is very simple, though you just need to look at the right place, follow the instructions below if you too are having a difficult time finding how to rotate an image.
Simply select the image you wish to rotate in your Photos application.
On the top-right corner of the image you will see the option that says, Edit, tap it.
You will see the icon for crop at the bottom left of your screen. It is right next to crop, tap that.
As you click on crop, you will see the option to rotate the image anti clockwise on the left, just above Cancel. Click that and the image will rotate anti-clockwise. You can obviously reset the image to the original orientation by clicking on Reset which is right bang in the middle. You can also use two fingers to rotate the image on the dial by the inscribed degrees.
As you must have figured out, there is no way for you to rotate the image clockwise, so you simply have to keep rotating it in the anti-clockwise direction till you get the desired orientation.
