    Straightening in Elements

    City Photog

      I am familiar with Photoshop CS5 - and previous version, but I am looking at Elements for my work situation - where I just do minor things. Is there an easy straightening tool - like a slider? I have even been using a consumer version of Windows Live Photo Gallery at home that has that option and it is so nice and easy. Personally - I think all Photoshop versions should have it. Thanks for your help.

          Yes PSE has a straighten tool. You simply select the tool and drag a line along the horizon or parallel with what should be horizontal or vertical and PSE adjusts the canvas. Then simply crop for a perfectly aligned picture.

            I can add that if you use the ACR module to edit raws and jpegs, you have a similar tool in the basic tab as well as the crop tool.

              Yes – that is what I figured – the same in the PS Custom Suites – thanks so much ! The one in Windows Live Photo Gallery is easier than that – check it out just for fun ! It’s so weird I never used to have the problem until digital . . .

                Yes – I have used it in the Crop tool – I think that is almost quicker than “drawing the Line” - thanks
