Rotate groups of digital images with this intuitive tool.

Not infrequently we see friends and family members sharing photos online that are sideways, often with the disclaimer, "Sorry, I don't know how to rotate it." If you're one of these orientation-challenged people--or if you're just looking for an easy way to rotate many photos at once--try Batch JPEG Rotator. This simple program doesn't do much, but it does make it extremely easy to rotate your digital images.

The program's interface is sleek and intuitive. A large open work area dominates the interface, with a menu down the side giving users access to the program's features. To rotate images, users simply select the folder they want to work with, and Batch JPEG Rotator loads the images into the work area. Users can then work with individual images or the whole group, rotating images either clockwise or counterclockwise, flipping them horizontally or vertically, or rotating them according to camera settings. This last feature is particularly nice; it looks at the EXIF data recorded by the camera when the image was taken, which contains information about the correct orientation for each particular image, and rotates the images accordingly. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, Batch JPEG Rotator isn't exactly featured-packed, but it is an effective, easy-to-use tool for users who frequently need to rotate groups of images.

Batch JPEG Rotator has a 21-day trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
