Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Straightening with Content-Aware Fill, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Elements 12.
When you don't have your camera on a tripod and you're taking a photo…like this has horizontal or vertical lines…you can sometimes end up with crooked content.…If that happens to you I think you're going to appreciate the content…aware auto fill option on the straighten tool here in the expert edit workspace.…To select the straighten tool I go to the bottom of the toolbar.…This is the Straighten tool.…I'm going to click on it, and then I'll go down…to the tool options.…Now, I'm going to leave the first option selection here,…this is the default, Grow or Shrink Canvas to Fit.…
What that means is that, I'm going to have the tool…rotate the image, and that will increase the amount of necessary canvas.…So Elements is going to automatically create that canvas for me.…I'll leave auto fill edges unchecked which is the default and then I…will move into the image and I am going to create a line along…one of the elements of the image that I think should be horizontal, for…example the border between the rail and the edge of the subway platform here.…
