Straighten up while crop­ping

Digital Photo (UK) - - YOUR PICTURES -

If you’re crop­ping an im­age you can straighten up the hori­zon at the same time us­ing the Crop tool. Hit C or pick it from the tool­box, and then drag it out over the im­age, de­cid­ing on the parts to keep and those to lose (greyed out, be­low). Next, po­si­tion the cur­sor out­side the bound­ing box, and click and drag to ro­tate. When you do so, you’ll see a grid over­lay and all you need to do is line up the hori­zon with a line, then click the tick.

Crop­ping Mark’s scene to a squarer for­mat im­proves the com­po­si­tion and leads the eye through the pic­ture.
