How To Straighten a Photo

From time to time we may take a photo of a landscape shot or some other subject and then when we bring it onto the computer, we discover that our great shot is crooked. CorelPHOTO-PAINT makes it very easy to straighten that shot.

1. Open the Image

There are a couple of ways to open the image. From the Welcome Screen, select Get Started and then click on the button to Open Document, alternatively, from File > Open.

Open the Image

2. Select the Straightening Tool

From the Toolbox on the left side of the screen, Press and hold on the fourth tool down. This is the crop tool. You will see a flyout and then select Straighten (Shift+ X). This will bring up the straighten tool. Now, using the handles on each end, drag the line so that it is parallel to an object in the image that should be horizontal. In our image, I have used the bridge as a guide. Once you have done this, click Apply on the Property bar.

Select the Straightening Tool

3. Next Steps

Now that the image has been straightened, you can save the file out or continuing to edit your image.
