Tag images needing rotation to alert SteinsplitterBot to fix them, by adding:


Images bearing this template are automatically added to Category:Images requiring rotation, a subcategory of Category:Images for cleanup. If the parameter |degree=0/90/180/270 is added, the image will automatically be sorted in Category:Images requiring rotation by bot, and SteinsplitterBot will rotate it. The parameters |nobot= and |reason= are only used by the bot. Do not add {{Rotate}} template at sound files, text documents or video files.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Images requiring rotation or Category:Images requiring rotation by bot


{{Rotate |1= }}

Template parameters

rotation degree(clockwise) angle expressed in degrees (e.g. for rotate 90°). Possible values are:
  • -90, 90, 180 or 270 degrees
  • 0 degrees - This could be useful if the thumbnail displays right but not the full resolution. Please do not use this if possible… MediaWiki will hopefully soon provide this automatically.
  • resetexif or reset - If your image showed up properly before the October 2011 MediaWiki-update, or the full resolution of an image looks fine (only the thumbnails are wrong), then you can use "resetexif" instead of a number to request the reset of the EXIF orientation data. However, it is advised to use the correct angle (RotateLink helps) instead.
  • any other angle will not be rotated by the bot
nobotno bot-rotationThe image can't be rotated by botemptyoptional
