Video Transcription: So let's say that you took a photo there there is not well there is not straight and you want it to be straight this video is brought to you by Appy Pie's Academy and you can use the tool that is called well the option that is called straighten and it sits inside our control panel when we initialize the cropping tool and it is this option right here you can see this ruler right here and it says straighten next to it so if I just click on it and now if I just tell Photoshop which line is supposed to be straight Photoshop is going to rotate the whole composition the whole canvas the whole image in order to to make that line well that line is straight so if I say that so let's say that this tower should be straight and this line here right here should be kind of a straight so I'm just gonna try to make click maybe from somewhere here to somewhere here and if I now just release my mouse button you can see that the Photoshop is actually not only making it rotate that to make it to make well our towers straight but it's also dropping.

Our composition it's cropping our canvas in order to to make everything fit inside our canvas properly so if I now simply just click on our checkmark you can see that right now the ill photoshop has straightened our image and well an hour and our composition an hour our Leaning Tower of Pisa is leaning no more so this is the original and this is what it looks like right now with all the lines being straightened out so maybe in order to understand this whole straightening thin a bit better let me just make some arbitrary changes maybe to my well actually it already is leaning so we got the leaning tower well we had the leaning tower now we have the linen tractor right here so let's say that I want to straighten this image out maybe let me just crop it even more just like so so let's say that I want to straighten this image out and so I'm gonna go to the control panel.

I'm gonna grab the straighten tool right here and that it just maybe zoom in a bit zoom in a bit so let me just maybe click somewhere here and move my line l-like well it'll I make it in line with our horizon to somewhere here just like so and now as you can see Photoshop has straightened the image and of course if we want we can still manipulate it may be rotated even more if we want to but if you want to leave it up to photoshop we can just use the straighten of option right here tell Photoshop which line is supposed to be straight and then just click OK right here so there you go these are the most well basic but actually the most effective ways of using the crop tool so in the next video we are actually going, to sum up this these cropping videos and so you can maybe remember them just a bit better
