Gif rotator

World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you rotate a GIF clockwise or counterclockwise. You can specify the rotation angle in degrees or radians, or spin it interactively using your mouse. You can also activate the GIF animator to see how the rotated GIF looks before downloading it. Created by GIF experts from team Browserling.

Gif rotator tool What is a gif rotator?
This browser-based program rotates GIF animations to the left or to the right around their centers. The rotation angle is measured in degrees or radians. The relationship between radians and degrees is determined by the formula radians = degrees × π / 180° or degrees = radians × 180° / π. This way, 1° is 0.017 rad, 90° is 1.57 rad, and 180° is 3.14 rad. Positive values of degrees and radians tilt the GIF counterclockwise and negative values tilt the GIF clockwise. You can also rotate your GIF directly in the input preview box and the rotation angle will be automatically updated in the options. The most popular rotation angles are 45 (and -45) degrees, 90 (and -90) degrees, and 180 (and -180) degrees. When a GIF is rotated by 180 (or -180) degrees it's flipped upside down. The rotated GIF preserves all its frames and animation delays, and you can watch the result live in your browser if you enable the "Activate GIF" option. Also, you can download the rotated animation with the .gif extension by using the save and download buttons below the output field. Gifabulous!
Gif rotator examples Click to use
Rotate a GIF by 20°
In this example, we rotate a blooming rosebud GIF by 20 degrees. A positive rotation angle number spins each GIF frame counterclockwise. Thus, the rose animation is tilted to the left and the background corners are filled with a transparent color. (Source: Giphy.)

Fix an Upside-down GIF
In this example, our math teacher asked us to fix a GIF that was flipped around. Being good students, we used a formula from mathematical analysis and rotated the animation of a prehistoric dinosaur-bird by π radians, which is equivalent to a 180-degree angle. To perform the rotation, we switched the angle measurement mode to radians and entered the value 3.141592. (Source: Giphy, created by: BBC Earth.)

Negative Rotation Angle
This example uses a negative value for the rotation angle, thereby rotating the Yin-Yang GIF clockwise. As the angle of rotation is obtuse (equal to -100 degrees), the output GIF is slightly deflected from a vertical position. (Source: Giphy.)
