Google is your friend:
http://www.delphi3000.com/article.asp?ID=2764

Procedure TurnImage(Src, Dst: TImage);
var x,y: integer;
begin
  Dst.Width:= Src.Height; Dst.Height:= Src.Width;
  For x:= 0 to Src.Width-1 do begin
    For y:= 0 to Src.Height-1 do begin
      Dst.Canvas.Pixels[(Src.Height-1)-y,x]:= Src.Canvas.Pixels[x,y];
    end;
  end;
end;

You can adapt this to do what you want.

Also, I actually couldn't go to that link when I found it in google - I had to check the Google cache.
But if you do go to the cache of that link you'll see  the above procedure PLUS improvements on it, stuff like being able to accept jpegs, being able to flip the image, being able to rotate it, and combinations thereof.

I have googled a lot which is why I finally asked.

I'm aware of Canvas.Pixel but it is very slow because you can access individual pixels.

I was looking for a solution that uses scanline and simply switches x,y of individual pixels to get a transpose.
