The rotation that is used for the BitmapImage. The default is Rotate0.

Rotation is performed after scaling. This means that an image that has a Rotation of Rotate90, a DecodePixelWidth of 10, and DecodePixelHeight of 5 will result in an image that has a width of 5 and a height of 10.

The following code example demonstrates how to rotate an image by using Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) and code.


<Image Width="150" Margin="5" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1">
  <Image.Source>
    <TransformedBitmap Source="/sampleImages/watermelon.jpg" >
      <TransformedBitmap.Transform>
        <RotateTransform Angle="90"/>
      </TransformedBitmap.Transform>
    </TransformedBitmap>
  </Image.Source>
</Image>
