# DrawRotateImage – rotating an image by a specified angle

``' Rotate an image by a specified angle (in degrees)' The x and y parameters are the coordinates of the upper-left point' Note: requires Imports System.Drawing.Imaging'' Example:'   Dim gr As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics'   gr.Clear(Color.White)'   Dim bmp As New Bitmap("logo.bmp")'   DrawRotateImage(gr, bmp, 100, 220, 45)'   DrawRotateImage(gr, bmp, 300, 220, 90)'   DrawRotateImage(gr, bmp, 500, 220, 135)'   bmp.Dispose()'   gr.Dispose()Sub DrawRotateImage(ByVal gr As Graphics, ByVal bmp As Bitmap, _    ByVal x As Single, ByVal y As Single, ByVal angle As Single)    ' Convert the angle in degrees.    angle = angle / (180 / Math.PI)    ' Find the position of (x1,y1) and (x2,y2).
