Correctly rotate your images every time (7/CS)

Added on Sunday 27th of February 2005 12:23 am EST


Adobe Photoshop 7/CS

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows



You can use the Measure tool to determine how much you need to rotate an image to straighten it. To do so, select the Measure tool MEASURE from the Eyedropper tool’s flyout menu on the toolbar. Next, drag a measure line along an edge of the image you want to straighten, starting at the lowest point. If you have the Info palette open, you can see your angle setting there. However, if you immediately choose Image > Rotate Canvas > Arbitrary, the angle between the two points you measured appears there automatically, as shown in Figure A. Click OK and your image is straightened according to that angle.

Use the Measure tool to determine the angle you need to perfectly straighten your image.
