# Rotate Image in Python

Suppose we have one 2D matrix, that is representing one image. We have to rotate this image to 90 degrees clockwise. So if the image is like

 1 5 7 9 6 3 2 1 3

Then the output will be

 2 9 1 1 6 5 3 3 7

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

• Consider temp_mat = [], col := length of matrix – 1
• for col in range 0 to length of matrix
• temp := []
• for row in range length of matrix – 1 down to -1
• add matrix[row, col] in temp
• for i in range 0 to length of matrix
• for j in range 0 to length of matrix
• matrix[i, j] := temp_mat[i, j]

## Example(Python)

Let us see the following implementation to get a better understanding −

Live Demo

class Solution(object):
def rotate(self, matrix):
temp_matrix = []
column = len(matrix)-1
for column in range(len(matrix)):
temp = []
for row in range(len(matrix)-1,-1,-1):
temp.append(matrix[row][column])
temp_matrix.append(temp)
for i in range(len(matrix)):
for j in range(len(matrix)):
matrix[i][j] = temp_matrix[i][j]
return matrix
ob1 = Solution()
print(ob1.rotate([[1,5,7],[9,6,3],[2,1,3]]))

## Input

[[1,5,7],[9,6,3],[2,1,3]]

## Output

[[2,9,1],[1,6,5],[3,3,7]]
