How do I shortcut direct to the Straighten tool so I don't have to go through Crop (C) and then click on the Straighten icon?
An alternate method...
Grab the Ruler Tool. It's located under the Eyedropper Tool and has a keyboard shortcut of Shift + I. Click and drag on the canvas to create a line. Go up to...
Image > Image Rotation > Arbitrary
You should find that the dialog box is automatically populated with the angle defined by the Ruler. Choose OK and you should be done.
Thanks for pointing out an alternative but it does not speed up my workflow. On my system at least, the Ruler\Straighten process leaves transparent corners and then I have to recrop the image anyway to remove them.
Thank you. Hope you come up with a good solution.
Content Aware Crop will straighten and fill in the corners
I have tried that but it doesn't fill in the transparent corners even when I have Content-aware checked. Something about my installation perhaps.
OK - Now I got it. It only works if you are NOT using the classic-mode crop. I missed that because with Classic-Mode, the Content Aware checkbox IS selectable - Until you draw the crop limits and then it greys out.
Hi, could you create a bug thread about this very issue (button looks activable when it is not)?
I'm sure you already figured this out, but just in case and if anyone else is trying to figure this out and runs across this thread. When you go in to the crop "C" tool press the CMD/Ctrl key and it toggles between the crop and straighten tool.
