Just a quick straighten.

First time uploading a pic, hope it works.

Yes you can. I think you can do it photoshop if you have. But I do not have photoshop so can't help.

However, I've seen google's Picasa (I use it to manage my library) can do it in a very simple, easy way. upto you.

here is a shot that my wife took, and I straigtened it out with Picasa. (btw. pointing the camera at the sun is a definite no-no)

In gimp, I would rotate and crop.. you could do the same in photoshop. unless it has something special to handle it easily.

elements has a straighten tool built right into it, not sure where it is as i use Photoshop CS2, but look for a ruler or search in Help by pressing F1, try this and see if it works in Elements

with photoshop you would use the ruler/measure tool, which is in the eyedropper sub-menu, towards the bottom right of the CS2 tool menu. Click on the Eyedropper tool and hold it down until the fly-out menu comes up and choose the little ruler. By clicking on a starting point of the horizon you want to straighten and dragging the line to the other side (the line should remain crooked on screen), then go to Image/Rotate Canvas/Arbitrary, a Rotate Canvas window will pop-up and give you Angle and Direction (CCW, CW) just hit Okay..if it is still a little off, hit Ctrl+Z to undo and try again, that's Cmd+Z on a MAC

I don't know how in Elements. I don't have that.

I know this won't help you, but I used Microsoft Digital Image 2006 for your picture above.

With that, it was just selecting "Straighten Picture" then pointing out what is a straight line in the picture and then selecting auto cropping.

Donna

HAve a look at this thread over at dgrin.com which shows you how to do it Photoshop and elements should be the same.

http://dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=2920&highlight

Not sure about any of the other RAW convertor apps but I've found that Lightoom has a "straightening" option is really simple to use - you just type in an angle and then lightroom makes the change.

Cheers

:O :?
