* It revolves the layer, paths and selected portion in the image.

2] Corrective -> This option rotates the image in the opposite direction i.e. towards backwards, against the option set in the box.Interpolation
- This option helps to curve the image. It takes samples from a grid of pixels from known image areas, then attempts to fit the curve, after that uses those samples to value the unknown image areas.Clipping

- Basically there are two ways to rotate an image.
- The two methods are - Normal (Forward)
and Corrective (Backward)
- The "Normal" option rotates an image in forward direction and "Corrective" option rotates an image in backward direction. The rotation depends upon the values entered in the rotation box.
- First set the tool option as "Normal" and click on the image.
- The Rotate
box is displayed.
- Now enter the values in "Angle" column and also in "X & Y" coordinates.
- You can view the rotation of the image while entering values in the rotate box.
- Now click the Rotate
button in rotate box.
- The image is rotated in forward direction.
- Some additional values applied in the Interpolation, Clipping, Preview
will include more features when an image is rotated.
- Now set the option as Corrective
, then click the image and in the "Rotate" set the values, click the "Rotate" button.
- Note that the image will be rotated backwards as per the values entered in the rotation box.
- The Clip
tool option will chop the selected portions of an image, at when it is rotated.
- Utilize the rest of the tool options to have a perfectly rotated image.
