Chapter 2. Selection Primer > Crop and Straighten

Crop and Straighten

Even with all of Photoshop's nifty selection, transformation and crop tools, the task of scanning in bunches of photographs has, up until now, required an annoying amount of rotation, cropping, copying, and pasting. Each photo in the scan had to be individually selected, then cropped or copied and pasted to a new document. Despite your best efforts, the photos are rarely perfectly aligned; at least a few usually cant off to one side or the other a few degrees, requiring further rotation and cropping (Figure 2.25).
