How to Rotate Pictures?

Postby OCEANREEF203 » Fri May 03, 2019 7:45 pm

Help anyone? I am inserting pictures from my library into a document in Open Office. Some pictures are inserted upright, some are inserted from my Windows library sideways, or upside down. I can't find a way to rotate the pictures upright. I've saved the pictures to my library in the smallest pixel as I can, most usually 33 size or less. Any reason for the problem with the display of the pictures?
Thanks...

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Insert the pic in Draw first then copy paste in Writer, then it can be rotated.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.

I'm sorry, but after trying the suggested steps, i still can't rotate, only flip. First, i am not sure how to find the "writer" file. I can open the picture in "draw" and i can see the tabs labeled "flip horz, etc." but the pics are still sideways (just flipped). Can't find the "writer" file/tab to save the pics to. I do appreciate the assistance. It's strange, some pics save directly fine, and others are inserted sideways...i thought it might be the size picture i'm working with. Mots of my saved pics are only 33-47 kb. small....
Still unsolved..... Thanks!

I assumed you were inserting pics in a Writer document. Can you precise what kind of file are you trying to do?
By Windows library, what do you mean exactly? Do you just insert a pic through the Insert > Picture > From File?

Rotate them in an image editor like IrfanView before inserting. See the tutorial on using images.

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

Also crop them in such an editor - it will offer far better facilities than OO for image manipulation.
