Straighten up with the Measure Tool

Here's an easy way to straighten up those crooked scans or images.

Instead of rotating an image by trial and error until you get it straight, you can do it quick and easy with the measure tool.

If you have a crooked image that you want to straighten up quick, just get the measure tool (you'll find it hidden under the eyedropper tool). With the measure tool active, drag a line across the crooked edge of the image or object you want to straighten up. Then from the image menu, select, rotate canvas, arbitrary, and hit enter. Viola! The image will automatically be straightened up.

Another quick and easy time saver
