I have a need to flip or rotate an image say 60 degrees, but MS Paint 5.1,

only allows me to flip at 90 degrees, the closest I can come is with stretch and scew but this distorts to much for me to use.

What can I do that would be rather easy and simple as I am out of answers.

I do not have advanced software nor can I afford to purchase any at this time.

Hello Jove,

IrfanView is a free program that I have used and IrfanView is recommended here at Bleeping Computer. I have never used it for custom rotations, but evidently it can do that:

Irfanview is great.

If you need further capabilities, though, you might want to try:

Paint.Net.

It's free.

Much appreciated,

I have Irfan View, never noticed much about it except to do some beginners start up SS, but I'll check both of these out.

Thats because that post was pure spam, and was removed and the member has been banned. Sorry for the inconvenience.
