public Rotation Rotation { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Imaging.Rotation

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.

Identifier field

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>
// Create Image element.
Image rotated90 = new Image();
rotated90.Width = 150;

// Create the TransformedBitmap to use as the Image source.
TransformedBitmap tb = new TransformedBitmap();

// Create the source to use as the tb source.
BitmapImage bi = new BitmapImage();
bi.BeginInit();
bi.UriSource = new Uri(@"sampleImages/watermelon.jpg", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);
bi.EndInit();

// Properties must be set between BeginInit and EndInit calls.
tb.BeginInit();
tb.Source = bi;
// Set image rotation.
RotateTransform transform = new RotateTransform(90);
tb.Transform = transform;
tb.EndInit();
// Set the Image source.
rotated90.Source = tb;
