How to rotate a picture in word?
Hello,

Is it possible to rotate a picture in word?, say for e.g an imported .bmp file...

Picture toolbar - once used, you can use the green handle that protrudes from the pic to free transform.

Right click on the toolbars on the top of the page, see if there is one called Picture.

HI,

Drop the picture into a picture box in paint. Then use paint to rotate it. Copy to clipboard and put back into Word.

Hi PODNickerz,

In the picture toolbar, click on the wrap picture button (The icon looks like a dog with text over it). Then, choose Tight from the sub-menu. Then, use the green dot which will be located over your picture to rotate it.
