Default Vertical lines.

Is it possible to straighten a slanted vertical line in Photoshop.

Yes, it's possible. The degree of difficulty and possibility depends on the situation. Couple of different ways to do it. Free Transform is generally the easiest. You may need to put the line on it's own layer.

Thanks ohenry, sounds complicated. It may be easier to shoot it again as it's a building just down the road from my house.

Its not that difficult. Try the following:
1 Layer>Duplicate - work on the duplicate layer.
2 Image>Canvas Size - set to 120%. this wil give you more room to work in .
3 View>Show>Grid
4 Hold down Control and click on the Duplicaye layer to select it , then Edit>Free Transforn - pull the corners until tha verticals line up with the grid, and the size looks right.
5 Delete the old background layer, and crop.

Thanks for the help Brian, i'll bear that in mind for the future. I'm new to photoshop and i'm still trying to find my way around it. At least i've learned that it's easier to get the shot right first time in future. Thanks again.
