Can you do the following:
- Place an image on a page
- Zoom in
- Set the display performance to High Quality
- Take a screenshot
- Rotate the image the amount you need
- Take another screenshot
- Export to PDF
- Open the PDF and zoom in as close to the amount you zoomed in on the InDesign file
- Take a screenshot
- Print the PDF and the InDesign files and tell us how they look
- Upload the screenshots to the forum with the camera icon so we can see what you are seeing.
Also please tell us what PDF settings you are using, and what PDF viewer you are using (Acrobat, Adobe Reader, Apple Preview, etc.).
Did you need this to be an interactive PDF, or is it for print. I only do print, so I'm not familiar with interactive, but someone will likely comment.
The PDF looks pretty good to me, and the jaggies in the InDesign file is something only you will see. If the printout looks good, I don't think you should worry about the screen view of the PDF, since you never know what it will look like to someone else on their own computer, which you have no control over.
i will be printing this magazine, but i'm so worried about the results... i just wanted to know if i am doing any mistake by rotating images shapes etc...

No, if you want to rotate, you should. The only thing that really counts with a printout is how it looks on the printout, so I wouldn't sweat the way it looks on the screen.
alright thank you i will update you anyway ...
When you rotate an image, the pixels of your monitor do not rotate, of course. So, the rotation forces your display to re-render the image's rotated pixels with its own un-rotated grid of pixels. That simply must, and always does, result in diminished display quality...but it's only your display. When your magazine is printed, the screening of the press will accommodate the rendering of the rotated image in a much better way.
