Description

I don't know if there's already a way to rotate a picture by freely drawing or creating an "A-B" point line in the picture to straighten it out quickly. If not, it would be really nice to have something like that in the "Crop and Rotate" module, sometimes the guides in crop factors don't really sit within certain areas such as a horizon line or something similar and it's hard to tell how really straight an image is.

Thanks

Try enabling the crop module, then left click on image and drag mouse across image. When you release the mouse, the image will rotate to make your drawn (striaght) line horizontal or verticle depending on angle.

This is a perfect example of the true meaning of "RTFM"

Thank you so much! Worked like a charm! :)

In case someone reads this in the future: It's the right mouse button and not the left.
