Presently in the image context menu, we have a submenu item titled 'Rotate Image' which has submenu entries for 'Rotate 90* Left' and 'Rotate 90* Right'. I'd like to suggest that we add 'Rotate 180*' so uses dont have to click one of the other options twice and also the Format > Flip functions of 'Flip Vertically' and 'Flip Horizontally'.
I agree. status NEW.
Only Writer has the rotate menu and lacks on flip. The image menu needs harmonization. So my proposal is:
Rotate and Flip > 90° left, 90° right, 180°, -, Flip vertically, Flip horizontally
Position and Size > Original Size, Position and Size...
Style > Area..., Line..., -, Edit Style... (Remark: Graphic Style is available only in Draw but should be also in the other apps)
(Writer, Calc) Anchor > To Page, Paragraph... / To Page, To Cell
Alignment > Align Left, Center Horizontal... / No selection possible
Arrange > Bring to Front, Forward One...
(Writer, Calc) Wrap > Wrap off, Page Wrap...
(Calc, Draw) Group > (Ungroup), Group (Remark 1: Currently, group is hidden when only one item is selected. Better disable the menu item like in Calc. Remark 2: Is it possible in Writer as well?)
(Draw, Impress) Convert > To Curve, To Polygon...
Insert Caption/Text... (Remark: Caption in Writer, all other Text)
Items to remove from the context menu:
(Writer) Properties... (Remark: No equivalent in other apps; Jumps to macro)
(Writer, Draw, Impress) Edit with External tool
(Writer, Draw, Impress) Replace...
(Writer, Draw, Impress) Compress...
(Calc) Edit Hyperlink...
(Calc) Assign Macro... (Remark: Although it's available in Writer it makes not much sense there.)
This might be an EASYHACK.

Context menu for image in Writer, Calc, Impress and Draw
Setting component to UI since we have keyword needsUXEval now.
This is definitely not an EasyHack.
The Rotate commands are only available in Writer.
They should probably go into Calc too.
I'm not sure about Draw/Impress. There rotation is handled differently. You can just rotate the image by double clicking on it and dragging it around.
Patch is in - https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/37253
For rotation commands to work elsewhere, separate bug has been filed (bug 107632).
