    It's Photoshop and OS-X and MultiTouch.

    When you use the two-finger rotate gesture, PS puts up the compass icon. It should go away when you release the trackpad. I just played with it a bit, and it would exit the canvas rotate mode when I let off the trackpad. If not, try "esc".

    In this mode, it's only the canvas which is rotated. It's not saved with the image.
