Droid Bionic Gallery: Rotate or Delete Images

You can use the Gallery App on your Droid Bionic to make slight edits to your photos, such as rotating pictures or deleting them. Here are the steps to follow.

Rotating your pics

Images that flop when they should flip might be oriented properly in the phone, but definitely not on the touchscreen. To rotate an image to the left or right, follow these steps:

  1. Display the image in the Gallery app.

  2. Press the Menu soft button, and then choose Edit and then Rotate.

  3. Use the circle gizmo on the screen to rotate the image.

    Though it seems as though you can rotate the image to any angle, the circle gizmo snaps to 90-degree increments.

  4. Touch the Apply button when you’re done.

    The image takes on its new orientation.

Deleting an image

To prune an image you no longer want in the Gallery, summon it on the screen by itself. Press the Menu soft button and choose the Delete command. You’re prompted before the image is removed; touch the OK button to delete the image. It’s gone.

There’s no way to undelete an image you’ve removed from the Gallery.

Some images cannot be edited, such as images brought in from social networking sites or from online photo-sharing albums.
