Chris Mattia teaches you how to use the hidden Ruler tool in Photoshop so you can quickly straighten your teaching and learning assets.
- [Narrator] On the last movie,…we saw one way to straighten your image during a crop but,…there's a better tool for this process…that you should know about and that's the ruler tool.…It's hidden underneath the eyedropper tool, right here.…The ruler tool is really easy to use.…Identify any object that you want to use…as your reference point in your image.…A good choice is always to chose a horizon, if you have one.…Then, to use the tool,…click on one end of the horizon…and drag over the to the other end.…
This will set the first point and then…when you release your mouse, you'll set the second point.…What's nice about this tool…is that you can now reposition these two endpoints…as much as you need to…in order to get your alignment just right.…To help with this, zoom in to your image…using command or control plus a few times…and then space bar, drag over to the first point.…Then, you can click and drag to move the point…and align it exactly to the point that you need to.…Then, space bar, drag over to the other end of your image…
