This modules provides the ability to rotate images in IMCE.

If assigned the rotate permission in their IMCE profiles, users can choose 90 deg clockwise, 90 counterclockwise or 180 degrees. Users can choose to make a copy of the rotated image, in which case the image will be assigned to that user through the file management system. Otherwise, images will maintain their relationship to the original contributor.

There are numerous IMCE plugin modules - crop, brightness and contrast - to name a few, but none that seem to simply rotate images. This project allows users to do that. The project's functionality is derived from Drupal's image_rotate() function as part of the core image_toolkit. This means that in the future it will be possible to expand the functionality of this module to include arbitrary rotation with different background colors and transparencies. For now though, the basic purpose is served.

IMCE Rotate was originally adapted by J. Branson Skinner for based on IMCE Crop and an unpublished D6 version of this module ( contributed by NaX (
