Changing Orientation From Portrait to Landscape in Photoshop Change from landscape to portrait in Photoshop and vise-versa

In this quick video tutorial Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes takes a look at how to change the orientation of your images in Photoshop.

How many times did you get an image which you wanted in a different orientation (say landscape instead of the portrait or the other way around)? simply changing our canvas size and using a content-aware scale can help us do that but in many cases, elements within the image will stretch and look unnatural.
