I'm using the UPS developer api to print shipping labels.
The label is returned in a Base64String.

I convert the Base64 to an image and then print the image with print document.

The image is sideways and needs to be rotated clockwise.

How should I go about doing that?

Use the RotateFlip method of the Image class:

e.g.

byte[] imgData = Convert.FromBase64String("the base-64 string");
System.IO.MemoryStream ms = new System.IO.MemoryStream(imgData);

using (System.Drawing.Image img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(ms))
{
    img.RotateFlip(System.Drawing.RotateFlipType.Rotate90FlipNone);

    // print the image
}

Open in new window
