    hi there,

    you can easily rotate pictures in window photo viewer by pressing the rotate picture cloclwise or rotate picture counterclockwise buttons. But if you are seeing an faded look on the buttons, they won't work as they are inactive.

    Possible reasons may be "they are put in an archive" or "you cant have sufficient permissions to change the pictures"

    If you still want to rotate the pictures, you should extract them to a local folder from the archive (if applicable) and then try doing so logging as an administrator.

    If the problem still persists, you can download Picasa photo viewer by Google from the link : http://picasa.google.com
    PICASA has the best user interface and also lets us edit our photos very easily. Along with this it also has the following features :

    * Upload and share your photos on Google+
    * Tag your Google+ friends and share pictures of them, and
    * Transform your photos with 24 new effects

    Hope you find it useful..!!

    Hello buddy,
    I think I need to re frame your question. I think you can rotate your picture in windows photo viewer but what your problem is, you cannot keep it rotated for a permanent purpose. What I mean here is that when you open a picture using the windows photo viewer and say that your photo is tilted, you click on either of the two options rotate clockwise(Ctrl key and K together) or rotate counterclockwise(Ctrl Key and L together). Now you believe that this picture will remain same when you view it next time. But what happens in reality is that you rotate the picture the first time. You close the windows photo viewer. Again when you open the same picture using the same windows photo viewer, you see that the photo looks again tilted, just the way it did before. It seems that the change you made had no effect on it. This is because this software is a mere viewer of your picture and not editor.
    So if you want to change the view clockwise or anticlockwise of your picture then you need a separate photo editor, like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Here you need to open your picture and change its view. After you changed according to your requirement, save it with the same or different name. Now whenever you will open this picture you will see the correct view of it that you wanted.
