Rotating photos in the browser

Some digital cameras have an orientation sensor so that photos shot in portrait mode are automatically rotated right-side-up when you look at them. However, since some digital cameras do not have such a sensor, photos shot in portrait mode appear sideways in the Photo Browser. This can be corrected by rotating them.

To rotate photos:

  1. Select one or more thumbnails of the photos that you want to rotate. (Use the Shift key to select multiple, contiguous thumbnails or the Command Control key to select multiple, non-contiguous thumbnails.)
  2. LightZone buttons rotate Rotating photos Click one of rotate arrow buttons above the thumbnails. Alternatively, you can select Browser > Rotate Left or Rotate Right.
  3. All the selected thumbnails will rotate 90 degrees in the direction you selected.

Note: Rotating either raw or TIFF files does not modify them in any way; instead, the rotation information is stored in sidecar XMP files. Rotating JPEG files modifies only the rotation metadata: the image data is not modified.
