    Is it possible to turn off the "Rotate with fingers feature on
    the new Trackpad on my new MacBook Pro Unibody 15" ??

    It is very annoying when doing photoshop and accidently rotating the image !

    I really would like to turn this feature off.

    thanks !

    I'm pretty sure you can pick and choose which multitiouch gestures you wish to have enabled in the trackpad preferances.

    How you get there, I don't know. I don't have a mac:(

    Um, my MBP is in the repair shop, but as I remember, you cannot just turn off that one gesture.

    Have you thought of MultiClutch? Go google it :D
    It's a program that lets you assign gestures. Maybe you can use the "Zoom-in" and "Zoom-ou" so that it behaves.. to well.. nothing. haha. assign it to space bar or something :)

    Yea, there's no way to turn off Rotate by System Preferences ( Picture Below ). You might be able to disable it by modifying the Files, but I Don't Know how To Do That. I haven't tried doing the MultiClutch Method so Try that.

    EDIT : Tried the Multi Clutch Method in Preview as I Don't have PhotoShop. It Does Work for this. Just Map it to something that does nothing/Random Keys.

    As far as Apple's preferences go, there is no way to turn of rotate at the moment.

    You can see all the options in System Preferences > Trackpad.

    Or have a look in trackpad preferences again if you're running Snow Leopard. Running 10.6.2 and I can tick or untick rotate.
