A very helpful tool is to straighten your photos and as I said, this plagues a lot of people and especially when you're shooting on a LCD, it's hard to get everything perfectly lined up. It's not easy. So iPhoto can help you with that problem. So we will go to Full Screen mode and you notice this photo here is just a little bit off, and I'd kind of love to straighten it. We are getting a little bit of tilt here on the poor barn, the hedge isn't straight, but easy enough to fix.
I am going to go to Edit and we have our Straighten tool right here. We get a grid, and the grid is actually kind of handy. It helps you sort of line things up. Then all you have to do is move this little slider right here and until you get. I am just working off that hedge at the bottom there, something like that and I am looking at the tree and I am feeling like I am pretty happy with something like that. There we go. Once you have it the way that you want, you just click Done.
Now, our Shift key trick works here also. So I am going to hold Shift, there it is, crooked. Here it is with it slight straightened. It may look a little soft here right now. It's okay because once I'm done with this, which I am, I am going to click Edit again and then it should pop to life. There we go. We are all ready to go. So that's all there is to straightening and just like any of the other edits that we make, you can always Revert to Original if you decide you don't like what you did.
