New Content-Aware Feature in Photoshop CC

Straighten a picture in Photoshop using the new Content-Aware feature. You may have a crooked photo that would look better if it was straighter. First, crop using the Straighten option. This option allows you to set the horizon line and then apply a Content-Aware feature to edit the picture. Here’s how in 10 quick and easy steps:

  1. Open Photoshop CC.
  2. Open a photo of your choice that is crooked.
  3. Click the Crop Tool. From the Options bar select Straighten.
  4. Draw a line to represent the horizon.
