they are experts-exchange "currency" to ask questions with.
generally if you ask a question for 0 points it will not be answered unless someone is feeling generous ;-)

The TImage, TPicture and TBitmap components don't have (that I know of) any innate ability to rotate - however, there are packages which give this ability.  Leadtools VCL is one example.  In general, rotating a bitmap, is done by mapping every point to another point where (x,y) is multiplied by the conversion matrix

cos a      sin a
- sin a      cos a

(where a is the angle of rotation in radians) to give its new location.

This oversimplifies in a lot of cases, however, because this doesn't take into account things like resizing the canvas, etc.

I looked at the question again, you mentioned images 'or other components'.  On the companion disk which comes with Delphi, there are the LMD and ABC components, which, among other things, have rotated labels and, I believe, other things like rotated button bars, etc.
