I am scanning a lot of old photos. Some are landscape and some are portrait in orientation, but I am scanning them all in landscape to make the scanning quicker. I would like a quick way to go through and rotate the portrait ones, preferable from finder and quicklook. I haven't been able to find a way yet. Does anyone have a way, in Keyboard Maestro, Automator or other, that could do this?

What application are you using for scanning? In Image Capture, you can rotate each image before scanning.

If you're still looking for a way to rotate the already scanned images, just open all of the images at once in Preview. They'll all appear as thumbnails in the sidebar and you can select all of them and rotate all of them at once.

to expand on the use of preview.

Command-R rotates so it is a keystroke away.
