Photo rotation in Word

  Duncanf 10:23 10 Feb 2005

I'm putting 3 photos on an A4 Word page to print on photo paper. One is A5 and the other 2 are A6 but I need to rotate the smaller ones 90 degrees to fit on the page. After clicking on the photo I can alter brightness etc but is there a rotating tool available?

One option is to open the image with Irfanview, rotate, save and then paste into Word. Long way round perhaps, but it will work!

Rotate an object
Select the AutoShape, picture, or WordArt you want to rotate.
Do one of the following:
Rotate to any angle

Drag the rotate handle on the object in the direction you want to rotate it.
Click outside the object to set the rotation.
Rotate 90 degrees to the left or 90 degrees to the right

On the Drawing toolbar, click Draw, point to Rotate or Flip, and then click Rotate Left or Rotate Right.

select picture, right click and select picture tool bar, select rotate left, (only option), but keep rotating until you get the pictures where you want them. why not just open the picture folder, select print pictures the print wizard well guide you through it, just tick the pictures you want to print, then select your printer set up then the layout, there is an option to get 3 pictures on an A4 sheet, hope that helps

Which version of Word do you have?

In Word 2000 if you select the picture the floating Picture Toolbar appears & there is a rotational tool on it. (It looks like a pair of triangles with an arrow) If the toolbar doesn`t appear right click on the toolbars and select it from the drop down box.

Conrail is right providing you have XP but sometimes the automatic print set up means that a picture may appear to be upside down. The trick is when looking at the photo in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to rotate the picture 180 degrees and then go to the print wizard again.

Thank you, Diodorus Siculus, conrail and Taff36.
Your ideas worked a treat! Many thanks again for your prompt suggestions.
