In some cases, your PDF documents may contain too many pages, and it is too time-consuming to individually rotate each page that needs to be corrected. Consequently, rotating by thumbnail comes in handy.

  2. When the four icons pop out, hit the second one;
  3. Place your cursor on the page, e.g. page 1, page 2, then right click your mouse to choose rotation as the following image shows.

Get Scanned Copies Upside Down (Printers, Photos, Documents or Books)

Occasionally, a PDF accidentally is scanned bottom up or rotated incorrectly, meaning one may need to correct the orientation of a page or image within a PDF document. For example, while scanning a pile of documents or books, it might happen that your scanned copies contain one or a few inverted pages.
