Flat horizons. You can use the 'measure' tool to work out how much to rotate a picture to make any line either perfectly vertical or perfectly horizontal.

Gordon, as one who constantly has problems with this, this is a great tip!

Rotating in photoshop is great to correct tilt that went unnoticed when the picture was taken. Another help is to use a grid on the LCD or viewfinder. I know some film cameras (mainly Nikon) have this feature in the viewfinder. I don't know about the DSLRs.

Nice! I always wasted time trying to figure out the arbitrary angle myself! ThanX :)

Excellent G!, just tried it, I seem to always be off a bit when I shoot in the vertical mode.

That is great G. Thanks a whole big bunch.

Thanks so much for that tip. I just tried it and it works like a charm!

I tried this on the vertical (straightened my leaning Peace Tower).

Thanks Gordon for putting this mini photoshop tutorial together.

Great tip, Gordon. As with the best in teaching methods, your tip is presented simply and effectively. Thanks.

Awesome tip. I never even thought about getting lines perfectly horizontal/vertical until I submitted my first picture here. Such a small detail that makes such a huge difference.

great tip... I always put a guide on the picture and then rotated the image in a larger frame until it looked 'about right'.. THis is MUCH easier...
