Straighten Images in Photoshop easily!

I've always had annoying problems rotating and straightening up images or scans in photoshop... either rotating too much or too little.

Well I found out a way that has been around since Photoshop 5.5.

Here it is:

1. Open your image that needs straightening in photoshop.

2. Select the measure tool and draw 2 markers along the axis that you want to straighten.

3. Then select the menu image>rotate canvas>arbitrary.

4. There you have it... Easy!

Hope someone finds it handy!

    Nice... I've been using photoshop all these years and it was there right in front of me. This will make life a lot more easy for those awkward photos.

    Keep those tips coming in!
