Welcome to a super quick tip on how to rotate your images (or a selection thereof) in Photoshop! As you can see in the video, it is super fast and simple. Here is how it works.

Rotate a selection or a layer
To rotate a selection or a layer, just hit CMD+T on your keyboard (0:19 min). This will bring up the free transform “tool”. Just move your cursor close to the edge of whatever you want to rotate and move the curser. Thats it, the rotation is happening. Once you are happy, hit enter on your keyboard.

Rotate your canvas
Sometimes, you don’t want to change the actual orientation of a layer or your image. Sometimes you just want to change the orientation of your workspace. Its like tilting a sheet of paper on which you are drawing to get a better angle. In Photoshop, this can be done by finding the handtool on the lower left (1:14 min). There, select the rotate view tool (or press R on your keyboard). When you press now and move the hand around, a little compass appears and you can change the orientation. Do whatever you have to do, and once you’re done, just hit esc or use the tool to move your image back into place.
