There's a school of thought that says you should shoot your photos at a lower resolution and lower quality setting than your digital camera can muster. The idea is this way you'll create smaller image files so you can shoot more images to a single memory card. This school of thought is so pervasive that many consumer cameras are factory-set to shoot lower quality images than the hardware actually supports. This is a very bad school of thought. You should always, without exception, shoot the highest quality images possible. Two reasons: first, your image may come out crooked, which means that you need to rotate it so that it's plumb.
But pixels are always upright squares, meaning, they can't tilt. So when you straighten an image, Photoshop has to recalculate every single pixel. If you watched my previous movies, you know that rewriting pixels is a so-called destructive modification. I don't mean that you destroy the image. I mean you rewrite the image, and so garbage in garbage out; high quality in, high quality out.
You may also want to crop the image, which is to say reduce its size to hone in on a particular detail. If you have a lot of pixels in the first place and you stand a chance of having a lot of pixels when the crop is done. What I'm about to show you is not just the better school, it's a new school with a completely redesigned Crop tool. Here's how to crop and straighten images in Photoshop CS6.
