How to Straighten the Horizon Line Using Photoshop CC
Hey there, this video, we are going to straighten this horizon line here. It's just a little bit off. We're gonna use the cropping tool to do it and we're going to invent new background using the content aware scale. So we go from this to that. It's nice and straight and there's even more background. Same with this one. Okay, we're going to straighten it up and then more background makes look awesome. Let's jump into Photoshop and see how to do it. Alright, let's open up the images. Let's go to file and go to open in cropping, there's cropping oh four and 05. Thank you. Hunter johnson and Caleb throw across anyway. Sorry. Okay, so we're gonna be working on this first image here and we'll get you to do that as a practice. So let's have cropping 04 open, let's grab the crop tool and basically all we want to do is straighten up the horizon. Okay, so to do that, there's a little option up here that says straighten look on that. Nothing really happens except your cursor changes to this like...
a little level. What you do is you click hold and drag across the image. Okay? It doesn't have to be all the way across just wherever you can kind of get a good sense of the horizon line and it just kind of rotates it for you. You can manually do it but it's just a nice little easy trick now using our extra skills from earlier on, you can see it's kind of cropped it inside, we're going to lose those pixels right here. Let's say I want to actually want to keep most of it okay, We'll try to at least see how it goes. Okay. So I want to rotate it and then I'm gonna make sure content wears on and I don't have to resize it again. It was just probably on by default. It's okay. Now click return on your keyboard or you can click the little tick up here and hopefully fingers crossed, it starts, it's pretty magic. Huh? So it's invented more background, straighten the horizon line and what I'd like you to do in the second exercise to do the same thing. Okay, so grab your levels tool and drag it out that return. Make sure content aware. Is there? Have a practice. Super simple. Super cool. Let's get into the next video yet another cropping video. Who'd have thought you could have a whole section on cropping?
