Rotation and Flipping

Rotating Left, Right, or by 180°

In the Browser, select all the pictures to rotate and use Edit | Rotate Left [Ctrl+L], Rotate Right [Ctrl+R] or Rotate & Flip | Rotate by 180 °. The edit is made immediately to all selected pictures. When you use this function from the Browser on JPEG images, it is, when possible, lossless. The menu items for this function are the same in the Editor as in the Browser.

Specific Rotation

In the Browser, select the pictures to be rotated to a specific angle and use Edit | Rotate & Flip | Specific Rotation… [Ctrl+Shift+R]. The menu item for this function is the same in the Editor as in the Browser.

You can set which Background color is used to fill out the empty spaces in the corners after you rotate.

Flipping Pictures

To flip (mirror) a picture in either the Browser or Editor, use Edit | Rotate & Flip | Flip Horizontally or Flip Vertically. When you use this function from the Browser on JPEG images, it is, when possible, lossless.

Adjusting Rotation via EXIF

Some digital cameras have a special sensor that can detect the camera’s orientation during a shot and store this directly inside of a photo. In certain PC programs, the photo is then shown unrotated. In Zoner Photo Studio, the photograph is rotated based on this flag automatically. To ensure the photos are correctly rotated in every program, select them in the Browser and use the Edit | Rotate and Flip | Adjust Rotation via EXIF menu item. Whenever possible, this operation is lossless.

Rotating to an Orientation

Use this function to rotate a picture or pictures to an orientation – either landscape or portrait. You can choose the direction of the rotation. This function is available in the Browser under Edit | Rotate & Flip | Rotate to Orientation…. Whenever possible, this operation is lossless.

Setting the EXIF Orientation Flag

This function is available in the Browser under Edit | Rotate & Flip | Set EXIF Orientation Flag… Use it to change the rotation flag that advanced digital cameras record in pictures' EXIF information. This function does not change the picture itself.
