  • $image − The $image parameter returned by the imagecreatetruecolor() function. It is used to create the size of an image.

  • $angle − The $angle parameter is used to hold the different rotation angles in degrees. It is used to rotate an image in the anticlockwise direction.

   $image_name = 'C:\xampp\htdocs\test\23.jpg';

   // Load the image file using imagecreatefrompng() function
   $image = imagecreatefromjpeg($image_name);

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

   // Output the image in the browser
   header("Content-type: image/png");
