Rotate Image

looking for simple way to rotate an image (tif file usually) using vb.net.
I am playing with RotateFlip and that I dont think is what I am looking for... not saving a file that will open up.

Any help you can give me is appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Here is a walkthrough on rotating an image around its center in .net:

Also, here is an example of rotating or flipping an image from a file:

''' <summary>
''' Rotates and/or flips an image from a file.
''' </summary>
''' <param name="imgPath">The path of the image you'd like to flip.</param>
''' <param name="savePath">The path of the flipped image you'd like to save to.</param>
''' <param name="rotFlipType">The RotateFlipType enum to flip or rotate the image.</param>
''' <param name="imgFormat">The format to save the file to.</param>
''' <remarks></remarks>

Public Sub rotFlipImageFromFile(ByRef imgPath As String, ByRef savePath As String, _
ByRef rotFlipType As RotateFlipType, ByRef imgFormat As System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat)
    Dim img As System.Drawing.Image
    img = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromFile(imgPath)
    img.RotateFlip(rotFlipType)
    ' We delete the file if it exists so it doesn't fail.
    If System.IO.File.Exists(savePath) Then System.IO.File.Delete(savePath)
    img.Save(savePath, imgFormat)
End Sub

' Example usage of the snippet:
rotFlipImageFromFile("c:\lol.gif", "c:\lol.gif", RotateFlipType.RotateNoneFlipXY, _
Imaging.ImageFormat.Gif)
