Step 2. Rotate Image with Rotation Pointer

Access the "Edit" menu and then click on the "Edit" button. To rotate the image, select it with the mouse, and then use the rotation pointer to rotate the image in variable proportion manually.

For example, if the image is only slightly misaligned, use the pointer, so the image is fully visible within the PDF and is aligned as per your needs. The exercise normally comes into play when scanned images are used.

Tips on Rotating Images in PDFs

  • If the image is slightly or completely off the PDF edges, choose the image with the mouse and reposition it so it is completely within the PDF simply by dragging to wherever you need it. The image is now aligned properly by rotating it.
  • The image also has blue corners that appear when you select the image. It can be resized to meet desired requirements. Rotating the image becomes easier.
  • Keyboard commands are very useful in rotating images. For example, holding down the Shift key while you rotate the image in increments smooth out the process.
