Image Rotation

Uploadcare Image Transformations allow rotating images manually and according to EXIF, flip and mirror images. Image Rotation follows the general CDN API workflow.

Automatic Rotation, EXIF-based, autorotate


The default behavior goes with parsing EXIF tags of original images and rotating them according to the “Orientation” tag. This is what we call autorotation. -/autorotate/no/ allows turning off the default behavior.

Autorotation only works when at least one other image transformation is applied.



Manual Right-Angle Rotation, rotate


Right-angle image rotation, counterclockwise. The value of :angle must be a multiple of 90.
