Chapter 4. Super Size Me: Resizing and C... > Straightening Crooked Photos - Pg. 121

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Go under the Image menu, under Rotate Canvas, choose Arbitrary, and then the Rotate Canvas dialog will appear. Photoshop has already put the proper angle of rotation you'll need to straighten the image (based on your measurement), and it even sets whether the image should be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise. Step Four: All you have to do now is click OK, and your photo will be perfectly straightened (check out the ledge in the photo shown here--it's now nice and straight). Step Five: After the image is straightened, you might have to re-crop it to remove the extra white canvas space showing around the corners of your photo, so press C to switch to the Crop tool, drag out a cropping border, and press the Return (PC: Enter) key. TIP: When you use the Measure tool, the line it draws stays on your photo until you rotate the image. If you want to clear the measurement and remove the line it drew on your image, click on the Clear button in the Options Bar. Resizing and Cropping Chapter 4 121
