Hi all,
Im not entirely convinced this image looks straight. When i look at the house in the background it seems to tilt down slightly to the left.
If someone else thinks so, can you please tell me how to straigthten it photoshop.
I only know the basics so the simpler the explanation the better, thanks.
Sam.

I think it looks fine, a lovely capture.
Straightening is quite easy, but you would end up having to crop the image...and then something else may not look straight

Sweet and funny. I wouldn't worry too much about straightness here, but if your software permits you could try skewing the top right corner outwards a couple of degrees, that would improve the line of the wall without losing too much frame.

A lovely composition Sam. If you straightened the cottage then the sheep would look wrong, so I would be inclinded to leave it as is.

Lovely shot with the queue of sheep being oddly amusing Smile

For the straightness, I would at the vertical edge of the building near the centre of the frame and agree with you that it's sloping just a bit. (horizontals are less useful as they often slope with perspective) Still just learning photoshop myself after years of using paintshop-pro and it took me ages to find a useful rotate option; oddly obscured for such a basic feature!

I can only guide from the perspective of CS4; but if you click and hold on the eyedropper, you'll find the ruler tool which you can select - draw a line between the two points that you like to make vertical (or horizontal), then from the menus select Image->Image Rotation->Arbitrary... and from here you'll see it's magically filled in the correct value for you

You could straighten a little but it does look fine as it is.

I don't think this is the type of shot where straightening is required Sam, It looks fine as it is. Maybe if it was some architectural building then that would be a different matter,
