How to flip or rotate a picture on your Samsung Galaxy S10

There are two very similar tools in a Galaxy S10's photo editor: flip and rotate.

When you flip a photo, you're creating a left-right mirror image. After flipping a photo, for example, someone looking to the right would be looking to the left.

When you rotate a photo, you're essentially spinning it by 90 degrees. If you accidentally took a picture sideways, you can rotate it once to correct it. If the photo is upside down, you can rotate it twice.

  • Tap Rotate (the button furthest to the left, which looks like a circular arrow) to rotate the picture in 90-degree increments.
  • Tap Flip (next to rotate, it looks like two brackets separated by a vertical line) to make the mirror image.
