How to rotate images in Dreamweaver CS5
Use imaging software to rotate images on a Dreamwevaer page. ( Images)

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 is a powerful piece of software that allows users to develop and upload web pages and websites. Although there are some image editing options within the programme, the ability to rotate images is not included. To rotate images, you need to use dedicated image manipulation software. Luckily, Windows comes with such a programme, Windows Live Photo Gallery and you can use this to rotate your image before saving it and using it in Dreamweaver.

  1. 1

    Click the "Start" button and open Windows Explorer to find the file name of the image you want to rotate. The picture should be in the folder with all your webpage elements in a sub-folder called "images." Make a note of the file name.

  2. 2

    Use the "Start" button to open Windows Live Photo Gallery. Use the file tree on the left hand side of the page to navigate to the "image" folder, and click on it to open it.

  3. 3

    Click on the image, which will appear in the main pane of the programme, to open it for editing. On the menu bar at the top of the page, towards the left hand side, you'll see the options "Rotate right" and "Rotate left". Use these buttons to give the image the desired orientation.

  4. 4

    Save the image with exactly the same file name and in the same folder then close Windows Live Photo Gallery. Open Dreamweaver and navigate to the web page that includes the image. It will now be rotated.

Tips and warnings

  • You can use almost any imaging software to rotate your image including Photoshop, PaintShop Pro or Gimp.
  • To complete this task successfully, you must save the image with exactly the same name and in the same folder after you have rotated it.
