Photoshop makes it very quick and easy to straighten an image as well. So you can see in this image here, the horizon line is at an angle. We just want to quickly do a Crop and Straighten in one fluid step here. So the trick here is to use a tool called the Ruler tool. It's buried underneath the Eyedropper tool. So if I click on the Eyedropper and press I'll see the Ruler tool that can be chosen from there. So I'll go ahead and choose that. The idea is to start the Ruler, put a position at where the horizon line is, or the area that you want to know that's supposed to be straight.
Click-and-drag a line through to the other side, and that's going to add a measurement line there. Then once you let go of the mouse, you'll notice that in the Options bar now for the Ruler, there is just a single button that says Straighten. Go ahead and click that. Voila! It straightens and rotates and crops the image for you all in one step. Pretty cool, huh?
