    How to level the horizon - Don't drink too much

    Open your photograph, and use the Rectangular Marquee tool to select all of the image (it looks like a hashed box).

    Then select Image, Rotate, Free Rotate. Put your cursor on one corner of the selected Rectangle, until a bent arow appears. Hold down your left mouse button and drag the box around a few degrees in the required direction. After releasing the mouse button, the image will take a few seconds to redraw - hopefully in a new horizon-level form.

    Now the whole photo will appear skewed, so once again select the Rectangular Marquee to get a straight portion, and then Select Image, Crop. This will cut out the ungroovy portion.

    Good luck!

      Mick's answer is essntially correct but left out one step. After rotating the image and releasing the left mouse button it is necessary to hit "Enter" in order to fix the image at the new angle before proceeding further.
