There's no direct way to do this. But what you could do is put that picture in full screen, rotate the phone so it's upside down and take a snapshot of the screen.

I just discovered that Facebook lets me rotate photos (if I access the site through Safari, not the Facebook app)!

Because he wants to upload the photo from the facebook app on the iPhone.

Sounds like http://abednarz.net/wp/category/soft.../photo-rotate/ is what you want.

Now with mirror function & arbitrary rotation with multi finger gestures!

Photoshop

Best and easiest way-- Download Photoshop Express as a free App. It allows you to rotate your picture. Then you can save to your own photo library or directly upload to facebook. Cheers.

You're aware that this thread was started 4 years ago and the last post before yours was a year and a half ago, right?


Since then, the iPhone now has native photo editing, including rotation.

Reason

Most of all "since then" the iPhone 4S allows to take pictures with the side volume button, which is why millions of users end up with hundreds of upside down pictures

Hence the solution to batch rotate iphone upside down photos

That doesn't make any sense. I always use the volume button when taking pictures in landscape on my 4S and I've never had that problem. The iPhone self-rotates, using the volume button as the shutter release was done on purpose. If all photos taken with that button came out upside-down, then half of the photos on Facebook would be upside-down. And besides, if you are uploading pictures on FB that you know are upside-down on your screen, then you're a moron for not paying attention to the pictures you are posting on the internet. Not to mention, it takes 2 seconds to rotate any picture on your iPhone now that iOS has built-in photo editing.


I'm done feeding this troll.

You can get Iphoto that offers you general features including rotation. Or you can download any free Photo- edit app!

I'm sorry to slightly bump this, but this thread keeps popping up in my searches, and there is a much easier and free solution with iOS 5:
  1. Open Photos app (the standard iPhone app (iPhoto NOT necessary!))
  2. Select your Photo
  3. Hit "edit" (at the top-right)
  4. Hit Rotate (at the bottom-left)
  5. Save! (that's it!)

Also, here is another trick that worked for many previous versions of iOS:

When looking at a photo in the Photos app, sometimes it is 90 degrees off (on its side) and when you go to rotate the phone to see it, the darn picture rotates with the phone!

However, you can get by this! Simply hold a finger on the photo as you rotate your phone. As long as your finger stays on the photo, it will not rotate along with the phone! (This also works for videos and for upside-down photos!)

Hope this helps,
MikeY

Mikey, thanks for the tips! Didn't realize that Photos on the iPhone could do that--or the trick about keeping the finger on the photo.

A big help--and it shows that it's worthwhile keeping old threads alive!

1.Open the photos app
2.Tap the photo you wish to rotate
3.Tap Edit
4.Tap the rotate button on the bottom left. It looks like an upward arrow curving to the left.
5.This will rotate the photo 90 degrees to left (or counterclockwise). Tap it as many times as you need achieve the desired rotation.
6.Tap Save.
