Day Nineteen: Double & Rotation

After the instability of my local internet, I got badly bitten on my two left fingers by my small poodle called Baron as he was being bitten by a bigger dog – a Dalmatian named Duke. After two hours of treatment with dressing and an Anti-Tetanus injection at the General hospital. I am back home. According to the doctors at Emergency Ward, my wounds cannot be stitched as there are bacteria present with animal bites. There shall be further dressing tomorrow to change the bandages. Luckily, this is last but one day before the end of the Photo 101 Course – a rather eventful one for me! From my photo archives, I make two submissions of a photograph of two clowns entitled “Double the Fun and Laughter” trying my best to forget the unfortunate incident this morning and the pain. The second is that of two baked crabs ready to be eaten.

Photograph two shows the baked crabs which had turned red after being fully cooked. These were ready to be eaten. So, for the second time around I must express my sincere apology as my emails has piled again to 200 over and I promise I shall view all these emails relating to your blogs and posts as soon as I can possibly can.

Day 19 ~ Double & Rotation

Day Nineteen: Double & Rotation ~ “Double the Enjoyment and Food Offering” from the two baked Crabs

As there was no necessity to rotate these two photographs, I have no attempt to rotate these two snap shots.

Day Nineteen: Double & Rotation

Your twin sisters. Your neighbor’s two poodles. Your vision during a dizzy spell. Your doppelgänger.

Double can be interpreted in many ways. Here’s our take, courtesy of two yellow lines on a colorful street in East London, England:

There’s one more day left in this course — have fun with this one!

Today’s Tip: Sometimes, you might wish an image were oriented differently — maybe you want a vertically-focused image to be horizontal, so you can use it as a header image:

Here, we’ve rotated the original to create a horizontal version.

You, too, might need to rotate an image occasionally. After you upload images to your dashboard, you can use them in various ways — embedded right in your post, inserted in a gallery, or displayed as Featured Images.

Themes display Featured Images in different ways. Check this list to see if your theme supports Featured Images.

You can use the rotation tool in your Media Library to change the orientation of an image, and use the new version in areas like your blog’s header. Access this tool in your Media Library, where you learned to crop your images:

When viewing an image in your Media Library, click Edit Image.
Use the two rotation icons — the second and third icons from the left — to set and save your desired orientation.

If you prefer not to use the tool in your Media Library, try the rotation feature in your preferred software or image editor — like Photoshop, Lightroom, PicMonkey — or your favorite mobile app.
