When you bring in photos from some digital cameras, they don't come in with enough information to get the photo oriented right in your computer, but you can fix that easily in Bridge. And although this is a short lesson, it's something that you're likely to do over and over. Here I have a portrait image and a landscape image, both lying on their sides. If I want to rotate them, I'll select one and then I'll hold down the Command key, and I'll select the other. And then I'm going to move up to the top right of Bridge, where there are two arrows. The arrow on the left would rotate counterclockwise 90 degrees. I'm going to click the arrow on the right, which will rotate the selected images clockwise 90 degrees, and that's just what I needed in this case.
Now with both images selected, I'm going to double-click in one of the thumbnails and that will open them in Elements, and you can see that they both come in with the proper orientation. Notice that these are both JPEGs, and whenever you make a change to a JPEG and then save it in Elements, the image is recompressed in the JPEG format, and you'll lose just a little bit more image data. So you don't want to rotate and then save in Elements, and rotate and save in Elements over and over again, but it's unlikely that you'll see a visible difference if you do orient your images just once, and then save them here in Elements.
