How to Rotate an Image in Google Photos

You’ll see the steps to rotate a picture in Google Photos in this post.

Here I’m using the PC and Android. Let’s get started.

How to Rotate an Image in Google Photos

PC

For the desktop version, you can do this task in two ways.

One is simple, and the other one is a little difficult. Let’s see both, and you can pick the one you want.

Method #1

​Sign in to Google Photos.

​Find and click on the image you want to rotate.

​Press the Shift + R keys, and it’ll turn the image 90 degrees counterclockwise. Repeat it until the image is to the degree you want it to be.

Method #2

​Go to Google Photos. Sign in, if not already.

​Find and click on the image you want to rotate.

​Click on the “Edit” icon.

​You can see the “Crop & rotate” icon at the top, the first one on the right side of the screen. Click on it.

​You can see the “Rotate” icon, which you can find between the “Aspect ratio” and “Auto.”

Click on it, and the image will get rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. Repeat clicking the icon until the image is in the position you want.

​Click “Done.” Click “Done.”

How to Undo Rotation and Bring Back the Original Image

Click on the image, click on the “Edit” icon at the top, and then click on “Undo edits” and “Done.”

​Android

​Open the Google Photos app.

​Find and tap the picture you want to rotate.

​Hit the “Edit” icon, which you can find between the “Share” and “Google Lens” icons.

​Tap “Crop.”

​Hit the “Rotate” icon, and the image will get rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. Repeat clicking the icon until the image is to the degree you want it to be.

Now click on “Save copy.”

That’s it.
