Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating images, part of GIMP Essential Training (2012).
When it comes to rotating images, there are two basic ways to do this here inside of GIMP,…one of which is on an overall image command level, and then also on a layer by layer level as well,…and so I am going to cover both of those in this movie.…In order to rotate the entire image, meaning everything inside of the contents of the document…you're working on, you can go to the Image menu, and then you can go down to Transform,…and you have the ability to rotate either 90° clockwise, 90° counterclockwise, or rotate 180°.…If you selected one of these, it would automatically rotate the image in the direction that you specified.…
If you want to go back, just Edit > Undo Rotate Image, and it will bring it right back.…Now, one of the interesting things here is that you don't get the ability to rotate on…arbitrary level. You can't just rotate based on a certain degree. You have to go in 90° increments.…However, you can get around this by using the Rotate Tool, and so what you can do now…is just go grab the Rotate Tool, and with the Rotate Tool selected, you can actually click…
