Simply rotate your photos without losing picture quality

If you have hundreds or thousands of photographs saved to your PC, you've invariably run into a problem. As you scroll through all the pictures of your kids or grandchildren, your friends, your home or the vacations you've been on, there are photos that don't look right.

It's not that the picture quality isn't as good as all the other photographs you've saved. And it's not that your kids' eyes show up red in some of them.

The most annoying problem is when photographs are saved in the wrong direction. The problem began when you took the picture. After all, you don't hold your smartphone or digital camera the same way for each picture.

If you're taking a photo of city's skyline, you might turn it so it's in landscape, to capture as much of the skyline as possible. If you're taking an up-close shot of a baby, you might orient the camera to portrait. Everyone does that.

But, when you download the pictures to your PC, you have to re-orient them, so they're all in the same direction. There's one problem with that. If you're rotating a JPEG file, it loses a little bit of its quality.

Plus, rotating it can be a hassle. If you want to change your picture's orientation, you might open the photo. Then, you use photography editing software to rotate it. Then, you re-save it into your collection.
