I have recently been sent several movies, taken with iPhones, I think.
Many time they are upside down or rotated 90 degrees and I can't view
them without standing on my head. Is there a free or inexpensive editor
available that would rotate them? I don't want to get into real movie
editing but I'd like to rotate the pictures.

Thank you! Opening the movie with Moviemaker works like a charm but I
don't understand how to save the rotated version of the movie in the
same folder as the original.

I have never used Moviemaker but two minutes on Google and I think I
have answered both your questions.

Do you use Google :)

Thanks! I am going to have to find out more than I ever wanted :-( . I
have resisted using Windows Live Mail for a long time.

Moviemaker uses terms I have never bothered with; I don't really even
know what a "storyline" or a "project" is supposed to be. As to Google,
the information is there but a responder to a post in a ng. can tell you
much more about the value and ease of doing something.

I haven't tried this but in Movie Maker, is there a Save As under File? If so,
just give it another name.

Or the same name (or just use save); why would you want to keep the
original?

Ah, now I get it. Open the file with Moviemaker; after rotating,

click the menu option at Save > Save Movie > For Computer.

You have the chance to change the name from "My Movie" at this point but
it will go to the Videos folder of Libraries unless you change that too.

That seems a little cumbersome but is as short a sequence as I can devise.

And also very standard for any software that can change anything, such
as text editors, word processors, spreadsheet programs, photo and movie
editors, and on and on. Even newsreaders and e-mail readers.

So apply this idea to future things you might do and your universe has
expanded dramatically :)

I don't think it was the open/edit/save process he was saying was
cumbersome, but the fact that (a) he had to choose other than just Save,
(b) it always defaulted to (i) a fixed name (ii) a fixed directory.

_Most_ (though not all) softwares default to saving with the original
name in the original location (which can itself be dangerous).

We have a huge scare over BSE when it is only killing the same number of people
as alarm clocks. Shouldn't we be having an alarm clock scare, too? ("Equinox"

Risk, April 1999, paraphrased by Polly Toynbee in Radio Times.)

And I don't think it was the cumbersomeness (cubersomity?) that I was
talking about, but the concept of "Save as".
