How to Flip a Picture in Adobe Reader

Portable Document Format (PDF) files contain not only text and website links, but also pictures, graphics and even line drawings. When a PDF is created, sometimes pictures within the documents are upside down or in an orientation that makes the picture difficult to see. Adobe Reader includes the ability to flip a picture to a view of your liking. Once in the right orientation, you can view the picture on your monitor or print it on your computer's printer.
