Change A Photo Orientation With Lightroom

Photographers who have to deal with organizing thousands of images from hundreds of shoots often use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Unlike Adobe Photoshop, which has countless advanced functions, Lightroom specializes in a few specific tasks, including importing, processing, managing and displaying photos individually or in batches. “With Lightroom 2, you spend less time in front of the computer and more time behind the lens,” according to the Adobe website.


1. Open Lightroom. Go to the “Catalog” on the left side of the “Library” module. Click on “Photographs,” “Quick Collections” or “Last Import” to access the photo you want to change.

2. Click on the “Grid” icon from the viewing options at the bottom of the viewing window.

3. Click on the photo thumbnail you want to change.

4. Hover your cursor over the photo thumbnail. You will see two arrows appear at the bottom of the thumbnail. Click on these arrows to adjust the orientation of the image clockwise or counterclockwise.
