Rotate, flip, or tilt, any animated GIF online

Rotate a GIF easily with Kapwing

GIFs are becoming more and more common — an animated GIF can be used to share short bits of video content in a social media post, a comment on a post, or a group chat text. To make your GIFs perfect for sharing, you'll need to rotate them to the correct orientation, or flip them for a mirrored effect. Kapwing allows you to rotate any GIF online in just a few simple steps, completely for free.

How to Rotate A GIF

  1. Paste a link or upload a file

    Upload a GIF file or paste a link to import a GIF from a website like Giphy. This GIF file, once uploaded, will be the file that will be rotated in the following steps.

  2. Rotate the GIF

    Use the rotation buttons in the righthand sidebar to rotate 90 degrees or flip your GIF. You can also use the mouse to finely adjust the rotation to the desired degree.

  3. Export and Share

    Hit Export to process the reoriented GIF. Download, save, and share your newly created GIF with your friends!

If you found a GIF that you want to flip sideways, turn upside-down, or tilt just a few degrees, you'll need to find a tool that supports both GIF files and custom image rotation. Using Kapwing, you can edit GIFs any way you want, including precise rotation and flipping.

Start by uploading your GIF to the Studio by finding it in your files, or paste a link to any GIF you found on Giphy, Facebook, Twitter, or other web locations. You can also upload any video the same way, then export it as a GIF.

In the Studio, find the rotation and mirroring tools on the right side of the window. You can tilt your GIF a degree at a time, rotate it in increments of 90 degrees, or flip it over the x or y axis. You can also click on the GIF itself and use the rotation button underneath it for more precise adjustments. When it's ready, click Export and either download it straight to your device or share it on social media.
