Today I've uploaded a bunch of photos to Google Photos service, but I've just noticed that half of them are rotated wrong.

I found this solution, but for lots of photos it's too slow and boring.

  1. Click one image
  2. Click the pencil icon to edit
  3. Wait for the edit interface to load
  4. Click the crop icon (lolwut?!)
  5. Wait for the crop interface to load
  6. Click the rotate button once or thrice, depending on the desired orientation
  7. Click the tick
  8. Click save
  9. Wait for a while while stuff happens
  10. Click the back arrow
  11. Welcome back to the top of your photos. Now spend a few minutes searching for the next rotated photo.

It would be better to rotate the photos in Windows, but I don't want to upload them again.

Is there a way how can I rotate more than one photo at once?

  • another option is just letting it be. eventually it will auto suggest to rotate them if its ai feels like it. – cregox Aug 9 '17 at 22:17

While you still can't rotate multiple pictures at once, at least now there is a keyboard shortcut to rotate a picture: Shift-R.

So click a picture you want to rotate, hit Shift-R (once, or 3 times, depending on the rotation you need), then either use the arrows to go to the next picture, or back to go back to the list.

  • Great answer, scrolling through the photos is pretty quick actually so this isn't any more painful than selecting multiple at once. – ak85 Nov 7 '16 at 12:46

With the new Google Photos app you can select multiple pictures by pressing on one and then scrolling down to the others they will be checked

    That's great for selecting multiple photos. That was never the issue. The question is about how to rotate several photos simultaneously. – ale Dec 10 '15 at 23:32

Select multiple photos Add photos to the photo tray to make changes to multiple photos at once. Here's how:

Press and hold Ctrl (Command on Mac) while selecting multiple photos. To select all photos in a folder or album, click Edit > Select all or Ctrl+A (Command+A on Mac). To keep your selected photos in the photo tray, use Hold. To remove all photos from the photo tray, click Clear. Edit photos side-by-side To compare 2 photos side by side:

Double-click a photo. Above the photo, choose how you want to compare photos: A|B: Compare two different photos. To select the photo to compare, click the second photo and choose from the carousel at the top. A|A: Compare edits to the same photo, or view the original as you apply edits. To edit, click the photo. You can also swap your view from side by side to above and below.

Saving photos When you save your photo, its location on your hard drive may change.

    The question is about rotating multiple photos at once. How does this answer the question? It seems you're just advertising the website you linked. – ale Aug 29 '15 at 15:07

    Please show me, where can I find Edit -> Select all option on Google Photos page? I'm talking about Google Photos, not Picasa program as your answer present. – Genhis Aug 29 '15 at 16:54
