I want to thank everyone who responded. The AutoRotate script does what I want, pretty much.
I am studying Scheme, which looks adequate to handle my desire for drawing shapes to call out parts of screen captures. Afterwards, I plan to start trying to comprehend the GIMP project, which seems necessary for drawing arrows. I'm finding the documentation difficult. I don't mean that I don't understand the vast amount of work put into it nor the completeness of what's there. I think my problem is more a matter of a beginner being overwhelmed by the size and the number of choices. What I've found very helpful in other projects of this type is a community wiki, where a beginner like me can submit a "here's how I took my first step" tutorial. The problem is the first steps are incomprehensible until you take them, then they become trivial. People who know the project can't really think up the questions, although they are the ones with the answers. (Rereading that, I hope it makes sense to someone besides me). Just for the record, I've been using GIMP almost exclusively these days and hopefully will be contributing to the project soon.
