A new Google Photos feature to take for a spin: Fast rotation

You spin me right ‘round baby, right ‘round
When you press Shift-R, baby…

Check this out: Go to photos.google.com, click one of your images, and press Shift-R. Boom, super slick, hardware-accelerated 90º rotation—no need to click the pencil icon, go into crop/rotate mode, click a button, and save changes.

Each time you press Shift-R, the image will rotate another 90º. This is a godsend especially if you’re dealing with a bunch of old, mis-rotated images: Just click, Shift-R, right arrow, Shift-R, etc.; rinse, repeat, rock out.

  1. Cool feature! Is there a way in GP to select a number of video clips and then combine them into a single clip based on the Oder in which they were selected?

    1. Not at the moment, but thanks for the suggestion. You can currently select a bunch of videos on your phone or tablet, then tap “+,” choose “Movie,” and create a sequence.
