Must be a simple answer to this, How do you rotate pictures to correctly orientate them, ie pictures taken in portrait end up 90 degrees one way, I am just downloading them from card onto computers hard drive, As most probably know in windows 7 there is a arrow kind of thing that lets you do this but can't seem to find anything in this crazy mixed up software.

First task with any Windoze 8 Machine is to install and configure Classic Shell Thankfully Chillblast do this as a matter of course on their machines if you are silly enough to specify version 8. I have never even looked at that wretched tiled screen and will be perfectly happy with things staying that way. Boots straight to desktop and that is where it stays. Sory not a lot of use, other than it may have the function you are missing added back in. That said I have never seen the arrows you mention in either Vista or Windows 7! I import using Lightroom though and sort anything that has not auto rotated later.

Start 8 is also an excellent program to return the Windows 8 interface back to something more usable and familiar

Here is a screen grab of the Windows 8 Photo Viewer with the "rotate" icons at the bottom of the screen circled in red.

Yes but that does not rotate the photo permanently. Only in Photoviewir. Same as version 7. I'm guessing the OP uses windows to import the images onto disk from the card and is referring to a function in the import dialogue. As I don't use windows for this I cannot be much help. I have auto rotate set in camera and the odd one it gets wrong I alter in Lightroom.

I suppose another option would be to get one of the many free programs that are around like irfanview and use that instead.

Yes it does rotate it permanently. as does hightlight them in an explorer window and "right clicking" and selecting rotate left/right.
Windows 8 is easy to use - the app based front screen is easy to avoid so I have found no need of any other addons.

How does Start 8 or Classic Shell help to rotate a image ?

Maybe some of the PC ludites on here should go back to their old darkrooms and use pen and paper....

Bit laborious but in your downloaded folder ,highlight and right click , then rotate .   I'm sure you can highlight all that need rotating at once though .

Edit  .I think this only works with Jpg
