Lens Correction, and the Straighten Tool for Corrective Rotation

A skewed horizon is a common place in photography and there are two avenues to easily resolving the issue in Photoshop CS5.

Both the Lens Correction filter in Photoshop CS5 and the tool box in Camera Raw feature a straigthen tool. This provides a pain-free method for levelling your horizon with a click and a drag of your mouse. In any photo where you can see the horizon, or at the least where you can see a reliable horizontal edge in some architectural element, then the straighten tool provides a quick fix which will help to put the world in its proper orientation.
