March 30, 2010 | Filed under Firefox, Imaging


There are tons of images that is on the Internet and some there will be some people that doesn’t know how to publish the image correctly, making you had to tilt your head just to see the image properly. One way to view it properly is to download and save the image to your hard drive locally, and then use any image editing software such as Windows Paint to rotate the image.

Another simpler way is to use a Firefox addon called Rotate Image which allows you to rotate the images directly from the web page without saving it to your computer. The rotated image will smartly move the text so that the images doesn’t cover up the text. After installing the Rotate Image extension, restart Firefox browser as usual, and you will have 2 new options when you right click at an image. You get to rate the image in clock wise or counter clock wise.
