Here's the critical thing to note that if the photo isn't a backed up one, then the picture (along with the changes you've made) will be saved as a separate photo.

To Undo Rotation and Bring Back the Original Image:

Tap on the image. Hit the "Edit" icon.

Tap on the Overflow Menu (three vertical dots) and then hit "Undo edits" option. Now, tap "Save."
