Hi guys, I don't know if I asked this before or not, and if I did, I'm sorry, cause I can't remember the answer.

Here goes.
I have, on my d90, auto image rotation turned on. Does that not mean when I am viewing them on my computer that all the photos I took vertically not automatically turned the correct way so I don't have to go up to my top menu bar and manually rotate everyone of them so I can view them correctly?
I know when I took a short little course a couple of months ago at our local newspaper where I work, we had to hand over to the instructor the memory card from the camera of the photos we just took. He then put them in the laptop and proceeded to show our pictures on a tv screen. Of course, there were all of my vertical shots sideways. He looked at me and said " you didn't set the auto rotate to on did you?". I just said, sorry, I thought I did. And when I left class, I looked at my menu in the camera and sure enough it is set to on..So, is that not the way it is supposed to work? Tired of tilting my head sideways to view my photos...
