How do you rotate an image in Photoshop without rotating the entire canvas"

  1. I would like to rotate an image without rotating the canvas. How can I do
    this. I don't want to get the white around the image.
     
  2. You are rotating the layer only instead of the entire canvas.

    let say you have a horizontal image that you want to rotate as a portrait mode for example, just go to IMAGE > ROTATE CANVAS and everything should rotate. If you have a layer and use EDIT > TRANSFORM > ROTATE you will get the result you get right now.
     
  3. I think that I know that you mean. You have an image with a white background. Use the Rectangulay Marquee tool to isolate the image. I would copy this to a new layer. Layor/new/image via copy.
    Then use the transform tool Edit/transform to do what you want. Fill the lower area with white if needed.

  4. What Errol said.
    Using image/rotate canvas as suggested above will rotate the whole canvas, which is not what you want
    Select just the image area then use edit/transform as Errol suggests.
