Rotating Image
When I rotate a landscape image 90 degrees to portrait format the top and bottom of the image gets cut off. How do I prevent that and be able to view the whole image?
Thanks in advance.

RE: Rotating Image
It sounds like you are rotating the layer rather than the image.

Try: Image>>Transform>>Rotate 90 clockwise

You may also have to drag the window taller or change the zoom percentage to see all the image.

Thanks in advance.
This is because you are rotating the layer and not the image. Use "Image/Transform/Rotate 90°...". This rotates everything (layers, selection mask, channels, path) as if you rotated your drawing board.

There are cases where you want to rotate only one layer (one sheet on the drawing board). Then "Layer/Transforma/Rotate 90°..." is OK. You can then adjust the drawing board: "Image/Fit canvas to layers"
