Anyone here with Canons who use the EOS Utility Software?
Just was wondering if any of you guys use the software from the factory for downloading your pics and for working on them?

Nope, just plug my camera in and windows reads it like a normal USB device - no Canon software involved. All the other work I do is in Adobe, never tried the Canon Post-processing software either.
If you are looking for PP software, I have a couple buddies who work at adobe and can get photoshop cs3 for ~80$ (or any other Adobe software for ridiculous prices). They have limited licenses they can purchase each year, but I can ask they can spare a copy if you are interested.

What camera are you shooting with? I'm not 100% sure, but I think Canon DSLRs should have a setting that automatically rotates the image for you. I know it does it on my LCD, but I've never tried to have it rotated in memory by the camera. Otherwise, if you already have photoshop (there are probably other applications that will let you do this as well) you could create a batch script that does it for you. There should be some good tutorials for this online.

Verone I'll give you my 2 cents - if you wanna get serious with photo you need some form of cataloging, processing and export/resizing platform - for that I suggest Adobe Lightroom. It's kind of a one-stop photo shop and great for getting started. If you wanna get even more serious you can consider Photoshop or other graphics programs for even more processing options. But Lightroom will handle all the obstacles you seem to be facing.
Regarding memory cards - how I do it is with high-speed external card reader - plug the card into there, and copy the files to the puter - much faster than doing it from the camera, at least, my camera (which is USB 2.0).
