Surface Pro (2017) vs Surface Pro 4
I'm looking for an on board graphics card that supports a portrait view, is there anything on the market like this now? a motherboard which supports nvrotate? I'm prefereably looking for a micro-ATX motherboard
Thanks in advance,
Even my Agfa scanner's ScanWise software allows an image to be scanned to be rotated as necessary and even reversed...:-)
NVRotate is used to rotate the monitor image all the time and not just for the occassional image. So Windows runs at 90 on the monitor. Can also be flipped 180 degrees too.
Although daemo hasn't specified there might be a reason that he / she wants to have the image permanantly rotated through 90 / 180 degrees. Otherwise why would NVidia offer the option?
Presumably because, for instance, if you use a camera (other than a two-and-a-quarter inch square negative size type) vertically for digital or scanned pix, then the resulting images need rotating to view upright on a computer screen.
But NVRotate rotates the icons, taskbar, desktop, everything. It's designed to be rotated and then left rotated for Word processing, surfing the net, e-mailing whoever, not just for turning an image from a Camera 90 degrees.
I agree with you that software like ScanWise will rotate an image but NVRotate rotates the entire desktop! I can't think of a single reason why you would want to do it but when i use NVRotate to turn my desktop through 90 i have to turn my head 90 to see everything the right way up. Also my mouse changes so when i move the mouse UP the mouse actually moves left which is now up. My taskbar is sideways on the screen. Not just like when you move the taskbar to the left of right - all the writing is side ways too...
I usually use Irfanview to view batches of files - it merely rotates the image - as does Picassa2 with one click of the mouse.
Yes we know.
Read this click here for a demo of why NVRotate is nothing to do with showing portrait photos the right way up.
Please try to understand this as i suspect daemo wants NVRotate to do more than just turn some photos through 90 degrees.
From the web page
Some uses of NVRotate include:
Word processing: View entire documents on the screen at once, no more scrolling to see a full page.
Email: View your whole inbox and scan your email faster
Legal documents: Create, edit and view non-standard size legal documents
Desktop publishing: View full-page layouts for print without having to resize and waste space
Web surfing: View an entire Web page without having to scroll down the page
Mobile PCs: Easily flip your screen down and rotate the display 180 degrees to display information across a table during a presentation
Medical imaging: View intricate details in fully sized X-rays and other medical imagery
Public kiosks: Create portrait readouts for airport flight schedules, electronic billboards or public systems
I can't specifically recommened any motherbaords. I suspect what you need to look for is an nForce board.
These have nVidia chipsets and it's the nVidia Forceware drivers that control NVRotate.
PaulB2005 is quite correct I beleive. I've used NVrotate on a rotatable monitor (an AOC TFT one) - it's strange at first, but it means a sheet of paper when doing WP does nicely fit on the screen, as do many web sites.
It's odd, isn't it, that paper is usually used *portrait* mode, and screens are usually *landscape*.
Computer monitors originally followed the standard TV screen 4:3 ratio.
