The built-in Cinemagraph Pro for macOS transform tools will allow you to rotate, flip, crop, and straighten your cinemagraphs.

Rotate | Use the rotate left and right commands to rotate your cinemagraph 90°, 180° and 270°. You can also use the keyboard shortcuts ⌘→ and ⌘← to rotate your cinemagraph.

Flip | Use the flip vertical and horizontal commands to flip your cinemagraph on the corresponding axis. The flip vertical command will flip your cinemagraph up and down on the vertical axis. The flip horizontal command will flip your cinemagraph right and left on the horizontal axis and produce a mirrored effect. 

Crop | Select one of the standard aspect ratios presets to crop your cinemagraph to a common aspect ratio. 

  • Drag the white markers inward and outward to adjust the size of the selected area
  • Drag from anywhere inside the crop to change the location of the selected area
  • Use the keyboard shortcut ⌥ to adjust the scale of the selected area

Straighten | Hover outside the white corner markers to reveal until you see the angled arrow symbol. Drag to straighten your cinemagraph on either axis.

Select Reset to undo all changes you've made under the crop tab. Select Done when complete to apply the changes.
