Default Need help for rotating photo .

Hi , I got some shot next to a banked curve today ,
but most of them seem horizon unlevel .

Could someone help me to rotate it with :

Rotate 2-4 degree to right .

All three are level, look at the electric power poles, which are all parallel with the edge of the frame.

Your pictures do suffer from a lack of room in front of the unit to "move into" and too much blank space on the left. This comes from having to shoot over an empty track with the train going away from you. Try to shoot from the inside of the curve, if possible.

Download and install Irfanview and you can do your fine rotations.
http://www.irfanview.com/

Download and install Irfanview first, then download and install the plugins.
Load up your image and go to Image>Custom/fine rotation and enter a negative (for left rotation) or positive (for right rotation).

I agree , I love these shot too .
If the KCR loco is not ER20 leading ,
I think it will look better .

For the unlevel photo , it has gone to ...
