  • Last Updated : 25 Oct, 2019

The imagerotate() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to rotate an image with a given angle in degrees. The rotation center of the image is center.

Syntax:

resource imagerotate( $image, $angle, $bgd_color, $ignore_transparent = 0 ) 

Parameters: This function accepts four parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $image: It is returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor(). It is used to create size of image.
  • $angle: This parameter holds the rotation angle in degrees. The rotation angle is used to rotate an image in anticlockwise direction.
  • $bgd_color: This parameter holds the background color of uncovered zone after rotation.
  • $ignore_transparent: If this parameter set and non-zero then transparent colors are ignored.

Return Value: This function returns an image resource for the rotated image on success, or False on failure.

// Use imagerotate() function to rotate the image
$img = imagerotate($image, 90, 0);
