Cropping crooked images

Use the 'measure' tool to draw a line on any edge that should be horizontal or vertical. Then go to Image>Canvas>Rotate Arbitrary and the necessary setting will already be entered to straighten the image. Then you can crop as you wish.

AH!! I've gotten to have a pretty good eye for how much .5 degrees is vs. 1 degree (vs. 1.5 degrees) - but I much prefer using more precise methods.

GREAT tip. Like Jeanie I've been eyeballing quite successfully, but often I turn the wrong way.

An excellent tip!

Now I won't even have to try to guess (and usually be wrong).
