To the LCD users of the forum. Most of the pictures I create, with the exception of landscape photography is in portrait orientation. Can anyone recommend a swing arm that rotates the monitor so that I can view my pictures in portrait orientation? My Mac can rotate the monitor orientation to 90 or 270 degrees. I currently have a 20" Cinema Display.

Or can anyone recommend a monitor that will have this capability built-in? You know, maybe with a rotating stand?

Thanks for the help.

Why not just rotate in Photoshop?

Samsung Syncmaster 213T. I have this and it can rotate with the relevant software installed. And the stand includes the rotating facilities.

adam, when viewing a portrait oriented picture on the monitor, I can only view about 33% size of the original image, by actually rotating the monitor itself to portrait orientation, I would be able to use more of the monitor space and it would also be a more natural way to view a portrait oriented picture.

Thanks for the tips Tommy and Mike.

Ah good point Manny, would love to be able to afford for something like you've suggested!

Saw a nice Sharp the other day that could flip to portrait. I believe it was at Sam's.

make sure your video card can rotate the screen with it so your not looking @ it sideways :D
