Why my images rotated in Bridge remain horizontal in Windows Explorer.
How to make this change permanent.??

There is an EXIF (or is it in IPTC?) value that has to do with orientation. Most late-model cameras write to this setting. Some programs and applications honor this setting, while others don't. Adobe Bridge does, but certain versions of Windows don't. I have Vista and it works. I don't have a readily available XP machine to check this.

What version of Windows are you running?

You can set your camera to "autorotate>ON" in its menu and this won't ever be a problem. Downside is when viewing on camera's LCD screen the image is a lot smaller.

Also, be careful if you use other programs (tools, utilities) that allow you to "rotate" your jpg images (disregarding the orientation bit setting). This will actually rewrite your image and, more than likely, degrading the quaility of jpgs.

Another thing that should be mentioned in that any changes performed to a JPEG file, including rotating it, will likely invalidate the file for being used as an original for a challenge entry. Always make a backup copy before doing any changes, no matter how minor! :)

Perhaps this suggestion is out of place, but I'll make it anyway... If you can somehow afford Lightroom ($99 with student discount) then buy it.

I'm convinced it was NOT written by Adobe programmers. It is fast, VERY powerful, industrial strength, intuitive and duck soup easy to use. It is those last two features that convinces me Adobe did not write it. :) As we all know, Photoshop involves a lifetime commitment to learning. Lightroom does not. It is easy and blows away Bridge.

I have about 70,000 images cataloged, organized and fully keyworded for searches using LR and it purrs like a kitten.
