I need to title an application button that moves an image 90 degrees clockwise/anticlockwise.
Which of the following fits better?
- Spin image
- Rotate image
That is the correct and standard word.
Rotate can be used for a turn that is less than, equal to or more than 360°. Spin usually implies more than one full turn around -- even many turns at high speed.
Spin means to rotate quickly, implying that it will rotate through more than 90 degrees. I'd say "rotate".
