I am looking to rotate my picture by a much smaller number of degrees less than what I see as possible..  I see an ability to rotate 90° and I see an ability to rotate 15°, but I want to rotate a customized amount which could be as small as just 2°.   Is this possible????  Please help... Thanks

Hello Ima Pepper,
welcome to the Affitiy Forum.
I think the post belongs in the questions
Yes, it's possible
Use the move tool and remove the protection from the image.
In the Transform panel can you rotate the image per typing.

Cheers

Apologies for placing in wrong section and thanks for your response, Gnobelix, however, you've only confirmed to me just how much of a newbie newbie I am because I cannot understand what you mean when you say use the move tool and remove the protection from the image.  I do see the remove tool, meaning the one with the upwardly left pointing arrow,  but I do not see where an ability to remove protection might be from that tool....  I do see the Transform panel you've referenced, however, I assume I have to successfully remove the protection in order to get that panel to light up....  If you can simplify even further maybe I can wrap my simple mind around it........ apologies.......

Hi Ima Pepper,

By protected Gnobelix meant locked. Check if the layer (image) has a padlock icon in front of it in the Layers panel. If so the  layer is locked and can't be rotated (or transformed in any way for that matter). To remove the lock click the padlock icon in front of that layer. Then with the layer and the Move Tool selected go to the Transform panel and enter 2 in the R field (rotation) and press Enter on your keyboard. The matrix of points in the Transform panel on the left of the fields lets you pick a reference point for the rotation - you may want to change it to the center.

Thanks, MEB and First - Being such a rookie, from my point of view, Gnob left out the minor detail of having to get to the Layers area first in order to find the lock to unlock....  thanks everyone.... I'm golden now, until I forget the sequence the next time I try this....lol
