Thanks

Yes. Just select the image, select the Rotate tool (3rd just under "Transform Objects") and either drag the handles or input the number of degrees desired. I do it frequently before extracting a vector set.

I see it in VCarve, but not in PhotoVCarve.

Ah! I missed that part! Sorry, I have no knowledge of that product. Hopefully someone else can answer this?

With PhotoVCarve (the product) you cannot rotate the image once it's been imported.

With VCarve and Aspire you can rotate the image before using the Photo V-Carve toolpath within those products.
