Things to consider when rotating images

Rotating elements of your design is crucial when it comes to making a balanced composition. The need to make an image spin is often important when it comes to creating complex visuals like collages, vision boards, etc. To achieve desired rotation results, some things need to be considered.
  • Mind the crop

    Keep an eye on the crop area when rotating images from portrait to landscape image orientation. You want to make sure you’re not leaving out important elements.

  • Pay attention to the horizon line

    When rotating landscape images, it’s important to ensure that the horizon line is leveled. If the horizon is crooked, the image may look off and distorted. Be mindful of the rotation angle and how it affects the image before finalizing it.

  • Stick to angles

    If you don’t feel very confident with custom rotations, use controlled rotations by tracking your angles — 15, 30, 45 degrees, and so on. Once you’ve decided on positioning, click on the button in the header menu to lock it in place.

  • Keep the original aspect ratio

    When rotating an image online, it’s important to maintain the original aspect ratio to prevent distortion. Maintaining aspect ratio ensures that your visuals look professional and visually appealing, which is important when creating graphics for business use.
