Rotating multiple images in Paintshopshop pro

  [DELETED] 19:13 22 Sep 2003

I have 120 images that I want to turn through ninety degrees clockwise. I cannot find a way of doing this except by opening each one and using the "rotate image" from the toolbar. Does anyone know a way to do them as a batch in this program?

I don't think it's possible. You could always turn your monitor on it's side..

Which operating system are you using, dotterel? I'm using XP Pro and I have the option on right click to rotate as many images as I select in a folder, at once.

It is a much better program, and free. Jobs like this are a breeze in Irfan View, but a real pain in the butt with full-blown photo-editing programs.

Use the batch conversion, advanced options. Takes about 1 minute I should think, unless they are enormous pictures.

PSP, is a program that I'm not used to, but I think you can create a "Script" this is called an "action" in Photoshop. full details for creating a "Script" can be found in the help file.
If no one can tell you exactly how this is done, or you cannot work it out from "Help". Post a message to this affect and I will have a go at it later tonight.

dotterel. As a test I created a "Action" in Photoshop, I found it was taking almost 45 secs per image, doing the rotation manually takes just 15 secs. So I decided it was not worth the effort trying to create a "Script" for PSP.

As Pesala says, use Irfanview. click here

Funny you should say that! It does seem to be impossible to do this type of batch conversion in Paintshop pro. And yes - I can rotate my monitor, because I've just got a TFT (Philips) with a pivot facility - it's wonderful. ;o)

Thanks for trying out the "script" function. I could not find anything similar in Paintshop.

I'm using Win98, but thanks for the suggestion. These photos are to go to someone else's system.

Thanks for suggesting Irfanview. I've downloaded it and it works a treat. Problem solved.

Thanks to everybody who responded.

Just what I need for reading smileys :) I always found them hard to understand until I learnt that you have to turn your head on its side. :(

If you're new to Irfan View click here to see a few notes I put together about the program. Though it is a tiny program, it has incredible power, way beyond the obvious functions like converting and resizing images.
