This can be used to rotate the image for an interesting effect, or more commonly to correct the image if it is at a slight angle.
Adjusting the contrast affects the difference between light and dark areas of the image. You can fine tune it to meet your needs, such as increasing the contrast to make your subject stand out more.
If your photo is too bright or dark, you can adjust the brightness in order to get a well-balanced image.
