This is what I do
I will normally batch process my pictures using DPP (which will auto rotate the pictures automatically) into a more screen friendly format - lower rersolution like 300x300dpi 6x4 inch. The output will already be rotated and can be viewed (fast) using Windows viewer or transfer to digital frame/vcd/dvd
since DPP will do the batch process, i really hope after the batch process, files on the target folder will be able to view vertically without rotating using the 'Windows Picture and Fax Viewer'.
Normally, i will take my memory card and put inside a card reader to transfer the files to my PC, which i think it will not process files which intended to be view vertically.
I see 3 of CS's sharpest knives are very kindly today
slow day at the office today for me.........
Now to ADD to this discussion...... i read that when a JPEG image is rotated from landscape to portrait.... some image degradation occurs ? Is this true?

shaddap and just shoot .... up close
Create a batch actionscript in Photoshop to open and save over the photo again. The orientation of your photos should look right after that, and you don't have to rotate them one by one.
If you want to make the rotation permanent and independent of EXIF for use with certain software, there is a piece of software called jpeg lossless rotator. It is free and rotates images based on the orientation indicated in EXIF, losslessly.
Do note that the rotation feature in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is very badly implemented and causes heavy damage to image quality.
I had been pissed by Microsoft for not able to even rotate an image properly... But another question is this an issue with camera on how to process their jpg file that can be correctly interpreted by various OS ? My point is, if an output from DPP can rotate the jpg correctly, why can't similar processing be done in camera instead ? This seems to be a common issues across multiple digital cameras, because my pict from Canon, Fujifilm & Panasonic is the same...
Anyway, I am so frustrated with these issues that now I only shoot RAW, and batch process to smallest size jpg file (for sharing & viewing). I really quite like DPP workflow, but still struggling with Panasonic software.
It seems like you did not read the entire thread posts
TS is having problem when viewing with Windows software, not because the cam is unable to auto rotate the pics but it is window software that does not recognize the rotation
Don't bring this discussion into a wrong direction
RTFM and install all the necessary software from the software CD that comes with the camera.
I too own a 500D but all my pictures taken in vertical mode appears already rotated to the right orientation in DPP, yes, Digital Photo Professional software that comes with the camera. You can use this program to do Post Processing to a certain extent.
Also, check the canon website for the updates to the various programs that came on the CD.
Use the tools that came with your camera to fully utilize it.
A picture a day keeps the blues away!
i can now view the pictures vertically using the windows viewer sofware after batch process the image using DPP. thanks everyone here for the help. Really appreciate it.
Got 2 question,
1)those files after batch processed using DPP and those files that i copy manually from memory card(without batch processed) any difference in IQ?
2)Normally people after batch process, do they still keep those files that has not been processed in their computer? I ask this because i am not sure if anyone encounter error during batch process, so if delete the original(unprocessed files) and later after few days found the batch processed has error, or failed to batch process, then we can not recover the files back.
