    Really great tip. I also really like the Two Minute concept, really just within my attention span,

    Lightroom 3 has a really great tool that does the same thing. Go into the Crop and Straighten tool. While holding the command key on a Mac(not sure of the Windows key) you can draw a line on whatever you want to be straight in the photo, in your case the horizon. LR will rotate and set the crop for you.

    Good to know I was doing it “right” intuitively. But that CS5 method? Snap. That’s where it’s at. Amazing. Thanks for sharing!
