I have AfterEffexts CC 2014. I am a total novice with this application. I want to know how to make a jpeg image spin and/or rotate using after effects. I tried youtube but couldn't find anything that described the process in the version I have.

Thanks

Hi pcwizz1 this quite complex and you'd need to learn about your Adobe After Effects tools.
What type of image is it? drawn type like cartoon or a photo? of a real life situation?
If it is a cartoon image you could create an animated gif.
Sounds as if you want a 3D effect  which requires duplicating this original into a sequence so that it appears to move.
Animation is the process of creating motion and shape change illusion by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other.

As your a beginner I'll share a video to start you off with it using both photoshop and after effects I believe this is what you want to achieve  animation use that key word.

 Add fake movement to a still and animate moving smoke
• Create a real camera movement with a rack focus
