Quickly correct crooked images in Photoshop (CS/CS2)

Added on Tuesday 4th of August 2009 09:23 am EST


Crooked images are annyoing enough, but it's even more annoying trying to rotate them straight again. You can use the Crop tool or the Rotate tool, but they require a lot of trial and error to get it right. A better and more accurate method is to use this Measure tool trick. First, open your image and select the Measure tool from the Toolbox. Next, drag a horizon line in your image, as shown in Figure A. Then, choose Image > Rotate Canvas > Arbitrary. When the Rotate Canvas dialog box opens, click OK to apply the default setting. Photoshop automatically rotates and then aligns your image to the line you drew using the Measure tool, as shown in Figure B.
