rotate PDFs from the Linux command line

ImageMagick's mogrify tool can be used to rotate PDF documents.

The commands work the same as with any image file:

mogrify -rotate 270 document.pdf

Note, however, that manipulating a PDF in this way will result in loss of image quality. To get around this, specify a particular output density, such as follows:

mogrify -density 200 -rotate 270 document.pdf
