Also, what types of files are you working with (JPEG, Camera Raw)? What is their size (pixel dimensions)? How many are you trying to rotate at once?

JPEG, size under 1 meg in most cases, these are scanned 35 mm slides. Number has varied from 2 - say 5 or 6. Works first time 90 degrees, but then does not work either by resetting blue box - re blocking - or all at once. Have to do each one separately. Windows 7, big machine with lots of power - and disk space.

Windows 7, big machine - dual processors, lots of memory, disk space, etc. See my other response. 35 mm scanned slides generally about 1 meg, m See the other response to Brett N.

I don't have Photoshop Elements 7 installed on Windows 7 myself to test. Then again, PSE7 came out nearly a year before Windows 7 and isn't official supported in that environment. However, when I test PSE8, I find that it works. Likely, the issue is with your files specifically, especially because they are coming from a scanner. We have seen lots of issues derived from proprietary metadata being added to scanned images by the scanner itself.

Try this: Photoshop Elements comes with a number of sample JPEG files, stored here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Sample Files. Import these files into the Organizer and try rotating them and see if you encounter the same issue.

It may be happening that the metadata of the image is getting updated. Can you please check the value of orientation tag of the image. This can be checked from the image properties->metadata and choose the "complete" option.
