Hi all,

I got few problens to level this photo, I think the angle didnt help at all. Is it leveled? I've used the left pole. And suggestions to future similar shots?

Hard to tell from a small(ish) version, but it needs some CW rotation.

Open it in Photoshop and hit Ctrl-"

That will bring up the grid, and will sort you.

I'm very bad at leveling a picture correctly and I found out the hard way that there is for me a better way than the grid in Photoshop. It's the rulers.

Hit Ctrl+R, this will bring up the rulers. They are visible at the top and left of the picture.
When the rulers are visible you can drag a horizontal/vertical line from the upper left corner of the picture and drag it precisely against a know vertical or horizontal area in the picture. You will see instantly if that part of the picture is leveled. In my opinion It works easier than the grid.

Hi Matheus

If you check at the light poles at the back, you´ll see they´re leaning to the left, so CW rotation will be needed. You may use the grid when you´re in doubt. I haven´t tried the ruler technique myself.

Quoting Matheus (Thread starter):
I've used the left pole

Try to use vertical references that are as close to the center of the pic as possible, to avoid any lens distortion.
Hope it helps.  Smile
