[Gimp-user] Straighten Horizons


I have just installed GIMP v2.8.22

I may have missed this function in the help system.

is there an easy way to Straighten Horizons?

i can use the ROTATE tool but is there a LINE DRAWING TOOL?

Basically is there a way to draw a line along the horizon in the photo
using the mouse and have GIMP make this the horizontal axis?


The standard way is the Rotate tool in 'Corrective (Backward)' mode, line the
grid up with the horizon, click rotate, and the image is rotated accordingly.

However, to draw a 'line' you need a script. One attached 'auto-rotate.scm'
**unzip** it pop it into your Gimp profile scripts folder

Windows C:\Users\"yourname"\.gimp-2.8\scripts

or Linux ~.gimp-2.8/scripts

Usage: Draw a **path** along the horizon, then apply the script, Layer ->
