Part 3. Basic Photo Fixing > Straightening a Crooked Picture

Straightening a Crooked Picture

This type of automatic straightening works best when the subject is just slightly out of alignment—a tower that appears to be leaning, for example. The program finds a strong vertical or horizontal line in the image and aligns it on the nearest 90° angle.

With the picture in the active image area, choose Image, Rotate, Straighten Image. The program aligns the image.

Crop the photo as desired.

Click the Save shortcut to save your changes.

TIP

Severely Off-Angle?

If the subject is severely off angle, use one of the Image, Rotate or Image, Transform commands instead.


TIP

Straighten and Crop

As an alternative, the program can both straighten and crop automatically (choose Image, Rotate, Straighten and Crop Image). But you'll be happier with the results if you crop it yourself.
