Here is a free software to bulk rotate PDF files as well as crop them. It is named as PDF Rotate and Crop. This is a simple software but very helpful when you have some PDF files with pages rotated to 90 degrees or any other angle. Using this software, you can select a particular angle (90, 180, 270, or 0 degrees) and bulk process PDF files. Even if you want to rotate pages of a normal PDF file, you can use this software.
Apart from batch rotating PDF files, this software lets you crop the pages of inserted PDF files. However, for cropping, you need to manually insert page margins (left, right, top, and bottom). It doesn’t provide simple option to insert height and width to crop PDF files. So, cropping multiple or a single PDF file might not be so easy (you can look for some PDF editors to crop PDF files), but this software is surely good to bulk rotate PDF documents.
Above you can see its simple and self-explanatory interface.
During my testing, it rotated 3 PDF files containing total 36 pages in less than a second. So, the PDF rotation process is super fast. However, it may take a few more seconds if input PDF files are in dozens and their pages are in hundreds/thousands.
