8.16. Straightening

Many a photographer has remarked that it's harder to keep the horizon straight when composing images on a digital camera's LCD screen than when looking through an optical (eyepiece) viewfinder. Whether that's true or not, off-axis, tilted photos are a fact of photography, and especially of scanning—and a new iPhoto 5 feature makes fixing them incredibly easy. Figure 8-12 shows the secrets of the Straighten slider.

Figure 8-12. The minute you click the Straighten slider, iPhoto superimposes a yellow grid on your picture. By moving the slider in either direction, you rotate the image. Use the yellow grid to help you align the horizontal or vertical lines in the photo, as shown here before (top) and after (bottom).
