    I'm running W7 and need to rotate an image by about 30 deg. clockwise and maybe a few others anti-clockwise at angles other than 90 deg. , but can't find a way of doing it.
    Paint[1] can only do in increments of 90 deg.

    This is something I actually want to do, been wanting to do this since yeserday !

    [1] unless there's a key combo or something I;'m missing.

    What editing SW are you using?

    Next time someone sends me an image that needs rotation, I'll pay
    particular note of how complicated the process is and report back to
    you. I don't get many, though, so I'll need some time.

    Can we set a deadline? How about February, 2016. I should receive
    one by then.

    Now that, I do do. There are images out-of-camera that I want to
    rotate less than 180 degrees for effect. Of course, I'll crop them
    after rotation to a standard landscape or portrait format. I do it in
    Photoshop using Select All>Transform>Rotate. Other programs may do
    it, but that's what I use.

    Tony Cooper Guest's *your* idea. If he's sucker enough, I'll be glad to

    Can you re-do that in English?
    Photoshop is not a viewer. Bridge is a viewer. Lightroom is a
    viewer. Elements has a viewer module. In all three cases, an image
    can be opened for editing from the viewer.

  6. I see --- so you're on your own if you use anything but a
    mobile phone camera (or maybe a compact camera), as DSLRs and
    so on are certainly not mainstream.

    And even in DSLRs, there's only Canon. And (maybe) Nikon.
    And certainly no third party lenses. And only lenses that

    If that's true for you, there are many places that are glad
    to take your money and handhold you day and night. In fact
    you can spend vastly more than a copy of Windows costs, if
    you like to.

    Do you have a modem or router for your internet access? Does
    it run Windows? Does your phone run Windows --- XP, Vista, 7
    or 8?

    Not always.

    I know of many applications that look at the EXIF and
    determine the correct orientation.

    Please provide proof. Use scientific methods.
    That *you* don't see a need for it is obvious, but that
    doesn't say anything.

    I don't blame you for Adobe setting their prices. You can
    however do something about your price.

    So what?
    Photoshop is also not a screenshot annotator, that doesn't
    stop you from using it as such.
    Screenshot annotating software does exist.
    That also doesn't stop you from using Photoshop for such tasks.

    That's a different issue from the rotation in 90 degree increments that
    was under discussion.

    In Lightroom some edits are possible directly from the viewer, others by
    going to the "developer" module which views only the selected items, if
    that doesn't suffice then you can go to the full Photoshop.

    if lightroom is a viewer then so is photoshop.
    if it's opened for editing, it's more than a 'viewer'.

    quicklook is a viewer. that's all it does. and it doesn't use *any* app
    at all.

    Photoshop CS(x) contains a viewer and library/catalog/assets management
    module "Bridge" which functions independently of PS CS(x). So Photoshop
    is not exactly a "viewer". "Mini-Bridge" is found within PS CS5&6, but
    is just a beens of accessing the assets managed by "Bridge" and is not
    a "viewer" in the most commonly used sense.

    Lightroom is "Bridge" on steroids.
    ....and "Preview" is a "viewer" with some limited editing capability,
    including rotation.

    slrs are definitely mainstream and sold in just about every camera

    contrast that to medium format and certainly large format, which very
    few stores carry, or you have to mail order it because it's so niche
    that it's not worth it for a store to bother.
    no maybe. canon and nikon are the two dominant players with several
    others taking up the rest. third party lenses are also very common.

    what's not mainstream are things like lytro or 3d cameras.
    people don't plug a keyboard and a display into a router and run apps
    on it, so it does not matter what operating system is in it.
    it's isn't always lossless on linux or any other system either.
    that's the correct way to do it.

    I was addressing the line above about wanting to rotate an image by
    "about 30 deg" or other angles. This issue was added to the thread.

    Dunno. That link opens a message that doesn't seem to relate at all
    to question you asked about my willingness to the train the OP.
    I haven't named a price for my time, and already you're objecting to
    But I can annotate screenshots in PS. I don't know how I could use PS
    as a viewer of multiple images.
    Haven't you circled back here? Your position is to have multiple
    individual programs with specialty function. My position is to use
    what I have to do it if it can be done with what I have.

    That's OK. If one of your running commentaries didn't eventually
    break down into an Ouroboros, it just wouldn't seem like Wolfgang.

    Yes, for that matter, Irfanview and FastStone are viewers in which you
    can do some editing. My point is that the Lightroom Library module's
    basic function is that of a viewer. But, that is not the only

    I suppose it depends on how you define "Viewer". If you define
    "Viewer" as any program that has the capability of displaying an
    image, then even something like "Paint" is a viewer. Personally, I
    define "Viewer" as a program that allows one to view multiple images
    in a gallery format. You may not use the same definition.

    That doesn't make sense. The viewer isn't opened for editing. The
    viewer opens the file for editing.

    very easily. select a bunch of images and open them.

    Guest Guest

    yes it does.
    nobody said it was.
    which means it's not a viewer, it's an editor which is being used only
    for viewing.

    And who is the one who constantly whines about "arguing for the sake
    of arguing"? If you have Photoshop, you know it is not a practical
    viewer in any sense of the word.
    Tony Cooper, May 25, 2013

    Use an ambiguous "it", and you should expect not be understood.

    Nonsense. The viewer links to the file which is opened in the editor.

    What you have said is similar to saying the door to the kitchen is
    used for cooking because one goes through the door to get to where the
    cooking is done.
