Rotate image function

Could a "rotate image" function be added to the image editor? and/or could you get a preview before image is actually added so you could make sure it had the right orientation?

Yes, I need to do this. I've noticed a lot of rotated images. It will require a small amount of coding on my part, but it is doable. Problem for me is that I'm very short on time right now. I might be able to squeeze such a project in sometime in the next month, but I've got a ton of stuff on my plate through July. I'll do my best to get it done as soon as I can though.

Hi,
Wondering if the rotate image function is still planned?
What's the easiest way to handle this right now?

There is probably a better way to do this, but in an image editor I first rotate the image correctly and then I crop a teeny bit from it and then I save it .

Yes, still planned. I hope to get to doing it very soon. For now, you'll need to rotate them off site before uploading.
