We are going to talk about rotating photos right now and I have a couple little tricks for you. First, let's do it the standard one-off way where we take an image, we open it up, we go to Edit and under Quick Fixes you have Rotate. So you click on it and it rotates one direction. If you hold down the Option key, then it will rotate back the other direction. Most of time when you want to rotate an image it's because a camera didn't correct it.
It came in from your camera like this and you want to fix it. If that's the case, you probably have more than one photo and you don't have to open them all up. So let me show you a little bit trick how to rotate a bunch of photos at once. So we'll actually get out of Edit mode here. Let's go back to our Thumbnail view. Just pretend for a minute, imagine that all these vertical photos came in horizontally and you want to rotate them all. So I am just going to hold down the Command key and go to all the photos that need to be corrected, that came in wrong.
Then you go up the Photos, and look at this. You have keyboard commands for this also. So you can rotate a bunch of photos at once and then you can rotate them back. So if you need to correct this problem where images come in sideways from your camera, do it in Thumbnail mode here. Select them all and then you go to Photos and Rotate and then that way you don't have to open up each one individually in Edit mode. It's a just a lot faster.
