The trick *there* is to make sure you use an app that doesn't a) mung
the EXIF data, and/or b) decode, rotate, and then re-encode - you'd
stand to lose much quality.
ImageMagick's convert utility - with the -rotate command - seems to
retain EXIF & quality aspects of the original photo. And it's fast and
easy to wrap scripts around.
jhead is a very useful utility for this purpose.
