Rotating images

You will have to download them to your computer, and then use software to rotate the pictures and resave them. A free, good program to do that is called Irfanview, just google it and you will find a site to download it from. The software allows you to adjust brightness, colors, rotate the pictures, and many options normally associated with a high-end product like PhotoShop, etc. When you rotate the pictures in Irfanview, you just pick "File", then "Save", and the picture will be saved in the present rotation. There may be software options on the camera to do this, but there usually isn't on most cameras and camcorders. Not having owned a Flip Video, I couldn't say for sure, but my bet is that it won't do it, and you will have to manipulate the pictures through computer software such as Irfanview or another viewer inherent on your computer.

I have a JVC 48' widescreen tv approx. 7 - 8 yrs old. the picture is now extremely bad all of the colors seem to be out of wack and the picture bows inward toward the middle at the top and bows inward...

There's a miror or one like this might have a ''aluminium sheet'' miror.
Open the upper back cover to see what going on there, pretty sure something run out of place...

My philips 60" philips tv model 60pp9352 picture is squeezed at the middle (like an hour glass on its side), how can I fix?

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
You can see some example photos and find a solution here...

Tv picture shaped like hour glass

The link you posted has been deleted, so I cannot see the picture you posted. If the sides bow in like an hourglass and the red, green and blue colors are still aligned then there is a horizontal width or pincussion problem, but if the sides bow in and the 3 colors have separated and are no longer anywhere near aligned then you have a convergence problem, both of which should be serviced by someone with experience in servicing projection TV's.
