Thread: Non level photos

  1. #1

    Non level photos

    I have many excellent photos that are not level -perhaps 5% off angle. I use a Canon 30D camera and normally use the Canon software for downloading and corrections but cannot find a facility to correct the angle problem. I would appreciate any help or advice.
    Regards Dennis

    I'm not familiar with Canon software, however any of the major editing applications (Photoshop, PaintShopPro, The Gimp) have levelling tools.

    Why not check out the web for free stuff? I know Picasa is free (I don't know if it's got straightening facilities though) but if I were you I'd invest in Photoshop or one of it's competitors.

    Picasa does have quite a useful straightening tool, it puts a grid on so you can see if either horizontals and/or verticals are aligned.

    Add PS Elements to the list of paid for apps that do it too.

    ... So it's not just me then

    Gimp is free and will work fine. It is well worth the download and learning curve if you plan to start retouching your own work. If you want to allign RAW images, you will need a different application. Most, if not all, only allow reallignment with .jpg's, .tiff's, etc.
