Precise rotation with a ruler tool

Recommended Posts

I often need to rotate scans so that the scanned text is precisely aligned with the sides of the image. In photoshop, I select the ruler tool, indicate a line on the top of some row of characters (or some other printed feature), then rotate according to the angle formed. Paint.Net doesn't have a ruler tool [FEATURE REQUEST!] ; what can I do in stead?

I sometimes use this tool on transparent layer for other angles than the set degrees in our program.

make the canvas just a touch bigger and import tool into transparent layer of your work

right clik and swivel entire image until you have degree of rotation. or measure degree and use layer rotate

which ever you find easier.

ciao not sure if it will work your app. but I often use this in drawing angles from scratch
