Don’t sweat it!
When you’re in a hurry, or you’re lazy like me, or even can’t see the display because the sun is shining on the screen, you may take some crooked, off-kilter photos. The fanatical photographer who hurts his or her neck and can’t straighten their head, doesn’t have to suppress the urge or throw away the resulting photos. There is a solution. In addition to the usual cropping, rotating, correcting lens distortion and such, you can also straighten photos based on whatever angle you want in ACDSee Pro.
It’s not as complicated as it sounds.
In Manage mode, select the image you would like to correct. Open it in Develop mode. Select the Geometry tab and expand the Rotate & Straighten group.

At the bottom of the Rotate & Straighten group, you will see the Straightening tool button. straighten_button Click this and draw a line across the image to set where the photo should straighten to. Most people choose the horizon or the ground.

The image will flawlessly correct its orientation to your line, making it look like you shot it perfectly right from the start. Press Done, and voilà!
