Can you guys teach me how to rotate an image so that when sent by email we actually send it in the right rotation?


Edit: As of 2016 this functionality is now part of iOS's native photo app

The following information pertains an iPhone, but I assume the iPad is identical in terms of features.

Short Answer: You can’t rotate photos in the default iOS’s Camera Software; you need to install a third party utility, like PS Express (recommended and free):

ps express rotate

  • weird that we need to go to 3rd party apps for such trivial action. – balexandre Sep 22 '10 at 10:14
  • The iOS is full of /facepalm things… ;) – Martin Marconcini Sep 22 '10 at 13:12

You can do this in the iOS photos app by tapping on the edit button on the toolbar at the bottom when viewing a photo, then choosing crop/rotate, then rotate.

  • you do understand that this question was made in 2010 right?... when iOS was on version 4 :P – balexandre Mar 7 '17 at 15:07
  • @balexandre Yes which is precisely why I provided an up to date answer with the latest information. This question appeared on the front page from an edit to the question, and I noticed that the current answer was insufficient.
