iLife Tutorial: Rotate multiple images in iPhoto

If you’ve imported some photos that are the wrong way up, here’s an easy way to sort them out without lots of tedious clicking

Main

iPhoto’s ‘Import to Library’ routine is fairly intelligent for the most part but sometimes, when importing a bunch of images, you can end up with several that are offset by 90-degrees
. There may be a number of possible causes for this, but it’s usually to do with the way that the camera was held when the shots were taken. iPhoto features a handy Rotate button that can be used to correct the problem, but if you have a large number of photos that need to be corrected, it can be a chore to have to rotate them one at a time. Luckily, the simple technique shown here can be employed to correct the orientation of multiple photos at once. When you select a range of shots to adjust, however, be careful that only the images you want to rotate are visible in iPhoto’s main window, as the Cmd+A keyboard shortcut can select all the images in your entire library if you don’t select the right folder first!
