Chapter 4. Super Size Me: Resizing and C... > Automated Cropping and Straightening - Pg. 122

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Automated Cropping and Straightening Since nearly everybody (digital or not) has a shoebox full of family photos up in the attic, I wanted to include a tutorial on the Crop and Straighten Photos auto- mation. Its name is a bit misleading, because it does much more--it lets you scan multiple photos at one time (on your flatbed scanner), then it straightens every photo and places each into its own separate window (saving you the trouble). Step One: Place as many photos as will fit at one time on the scanning bed of your desk- top scanner and scan them in. They'll all appear in one large document in Photoshop. As you can see, these photos were crooked when placed on the scanning bed, so naturally they appear crooked in the Photoshop document. Step Two: Go under the File menu, under Automate, and choose Crop and Straighten Photos. 122 Chapter 4 Resizing and Cropping ©SCOTT KELBY
