Rotate an image in image source in html


Is there a way I could add in the source of my image codes that could rotate my image?

Something like this:

<img id="image_canv" src="/image.png" rotate="90">

I'm making my images dynamic, so I was wondering if I could append some extra code to rotate it if I want it to.

The Best Answer is


If your rotation angles are fairly uniform, you can use CSS:

<img id="image_canv" src="/image.png" class="rotate90">


.rotate90 {
    -webkit-transform: rotate(90deg);
    -moz-transform: rotate(90deg);
    -o-transform: rotate(90deg);
    -ms-transform: rotate(90deg);
    transform: rotate(90deg);

Otherwise, you can do this by setting a data attribute in your HTML, then using Javascript to add the necessary styling:

<img id="image_canv" src="/image.png" data-rotate="90">

Sample jQuery:

$('img').each(function() {
    var deg = $(this).data('rotate') || 0;
    var rotate = 'rotate(' + deg + 'deg)';
        '-webkit-transform': rotate,
        '-moz-transform': rotate,
        '-o-transform': rotate,
        '-ms-transform': rotate,
        'transform': rotate

You can do this:

<img src="your image" style="transform:rotate(90deg);">

it is much easier.
