Rotate Images in the Finder

Cool Keyboard Shortcut to rotate any image in the Finder

A cool hidden trick in the MacOS Finder is the ability to rotate an image or video without having to open up an application. There are 2 hidden keyboard shortcuts - rotate right and rotate left.

Simple Steps

  1. Select any image or video.
  2. Type in Command R to rotate the file 90-degrees to the right.
  3. You can Command R several times to keep rotating the file.

Note: Using this method will change the modified date of the file, it won't change the Created date.

As someone who has worked on Macs since 1989, I will use my experience to share tips and tricks with you on Fridays. As a Mac user since 1989, I have seen the evolution of Mac software and hardware, and I know how Mac computers work. I also know how to troubleshoot and fix Mac problems that can arise.
