Use the Rotate View tool for more fluent image editing (Photoshop CS6/CC/CC 2014/CC 2015/CC 2017)

If you’re looking for a handy tool to make your image editing easier, try the Rotate View tool. With the Rotate View tool you can rotate your image preview (but not the image), so you can access your image from different angles, making touch up work less cumbersome. To try it out, select the Rotate View tool from the Tools panel. (It resides in the same tool spot as the Hand tool, so if you don’t see it, click and hold the Hand tool then choose the Rotate View tool from the pop-up.) Click on the image and drag in a circular motion to rotate the image preview. Notice the preview in the Layers panel is still in the original position! Edit your image, clicking and dragging the image to rotate more if needed. When you want to put the image back to its original position, press Escape. Or, if the Rotate View tool is still selected, click the Reset View button on the tool options bar.
