I’ve stumbled on something very cool. I am a stickler for perfectly horizontal horizons. The tool in google photos edit puts lines on the screen to line up to – but for me they are too far apart. Sooo I did this..
1. Edit your pic
2. Hit Crop button
3. Drag the bottom of the picture to just under whatever it is you want horizontal
4. Use the straighten tool to make horizontal
5. Drag bottom of edited pic to its original place at the bottom – it will snap to the new alignment
6. Done
I’ve made a video to demonstrate.
Let me know what you think
