This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The php5-gd library on some Debian hosts doesn’t include imagerotate() due to memory leaks.

If you notice that rotating images does not work in the image editor, just install this plugin to supply an alternative imagerotate() function.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload imagerotate.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
