With Lightroom, it’s an easy fix that will take you just few seconds of your workflow.

Open your pictures in Lightroom.

You are able to decide on what you want to straighten your picture. In this example I decided to choose the border of the wall but I could have chosen the line between the grass and treesHow to straighten in Lightroom

Click on the crop tool (the one that looks like a small grid) then click on angle. Your mouse will look like a short straighten ruler.How to straighten in Lightroom


Click on one side of the line you want to follow (the wall in my example) then click on the other side keeping the right click. Release your mouse; your picture will by magically be straight!How to straighten in Lightroom

Go back to the Library module. Select the picture you just did and the ones you want to do. Click on “Sync Settings”. Mark only the “straighten angle” then click synchronizeHow to straighten in Lightroom
