Straightening Photos

Sometimes, photos aren’t lined up “square” with the frame of reference and so they look twisted. You might want this for aesthetic reasons, but in some cases, you want to straighten the image up so that it better aligns with the invisible horizontal and vertical grid we all use to judge whether something is “straight.”
