Straighten images in Photoshop CS6

It is pretty easy to straighten images in Photoshop CS6. The new and improved Crop tool lets you straighten images as well.

  1. Select the Crop tool.
  2. Click Straighten from the control bar on top.
  3. Draw a line along an edge that should have been straight. For  example, draw a line along the horizon, or perhaps the edge of a building. Photoshop will automatically rotate the image by the right amount, resize the canvas, and show you a live preview of what the final image will look like

  4. Press Enter/Return to commit the change.

Note: If you want the option to revisit your decision about the crop, uncheck Delete Cropped Pixels in the Control bar. Enabling this option will perform a non-destructive crop.
