Rotating, Flipping and Mirroring Images

You can change the orientation of a photograph by rotating it.

Rotating photos on Zenfolio is a non-destructive operation that does not affect original full size files. The rotation only affects the versions of the images that are displayed on the site. The originally uploaded file is not rotated or edited.
 

You can rotate photos in 90-degree increments. The available options are Rotate Left, Rotate Right, Flip, and Mirror. To rotate a photograph:

Thumbnails Mode in the Main Area

  1. In the Dashboard, go to Photos.
  2. Select the gallery containing the photograph you would like to rotate in the Organizer. Thumbnails will load in the Main Area and the name of the gallery will display at the top.
  3. In the Main Area, select a thumbnail of the photograph you would like to rotate. The thumbnail will become highlighted and details for that photo will load in the Toolbox.
  4. In the Bottom Menu of the Main Area (you may need to scroll down to see the menu) the following option icons are listed: Rotate LeftRotate RightFlip, and Mirror. Click the desired direction once and wait for the result to be updated on your screen.

Note: The above steps can be applied to multiple selected items as one operation. Hold the Control key (Command key on a Mac) on your keyboard while clicking on thumbnails to highlight multiple thumbnails.

This operation requires computing power on the Zenfolio servers and depending on how busy the servers are it may take a few seconds to complete- longer when editing multiple images at once.
