Drag a line in your photo to show Elements where horizontal should be

As shown in Figure 10-6 , you draw your line at an angle. Elements automatically levels out your photo, making your line the true horizontal plane in the image. If the rotation moves parts of your image outside the frame, Elements either trims or leaves them, depending on what you chose in the Options bar.

Tip: If you have a photo of trees, sailing ships, skyscrapers, or any other subject where you'd rather straighten vertically than horizontally, then just hold down Ctrl while you drag. The line you draw determines the vertical axis of your photo.

If you don't like what Elements did, press Ctrl+Z to undo it and draw another line. If you're happy, then you're all done, except for saving your work (Ctrl+S).
