Learn how to use Photoshop's grid overlay to straighten a crooked image—especially a horizon line.
- [Instructor] The second of the crop grid overlays…is referred to as the grid.…I'll choose my Crop tool and then click on the image,…currently, in rule of thirds.…I'll press the Okay to cycle through to the grid.…Now I should mention that the grid also is invoked…if you just start rotating the image,…regardless of which crop overlay you're actually working in.…So I can now rotate this image…just to try and straighten that horizon line.…
And then, press Return to commit to that.…You can also use the Straighten tool for the same purpose.…I'll just undo that and now,…come and use the Straighten tool,…drag along the horizon that you want to straighten to,…and then the grid will be invoked.…You can make any adjustments you need to,…press Return to commit to that crop.…And, as in the previous movie,…Delete Cropped Pixels is not checked…so that my crop is non-destructive.…
