Image editing in OneNote for Windows 10 is limited to rotating inserted pictures and photos in 90 degree increments. As a workaround, you can edit and crop pictures in your favorite image editing app before inserting them into your notes.

To rotate or flip a picture, do the following:

  1. Click or tap the image to select it.

  2. Click the Picture tab that appears on the ribbon, and then do any of the following:

    • Click Rotate Right 90° to rotate the selected picture by 90 degrees clockwise.

    • Click Rotate Left 90° to rotate the selected picture by 90 degrees counterclockwise.

    • Click Flip Horizontal to flip the selected picture horizontally.

    • Click Flip Vertical to flip the selected picture vertically.
