Tools to make horizon straight?
Hi,

I have an image with the sea and a horizon, I want to make the horizon straight and wonder if there is any useful tool in Gimp to edit the image? I have done it in Photoshop before and remember that there was several tools to pull and change the image. Perhaps Gimp doesn't have tools like that? As it is now, the the horizon is a little bit curved and look strange.

Thanks!

RE: Tools to make horizon straight?
I use the rotate tool in "corrective mode". Rotate to align the grid on what should be horizontal (if there are buildings, on verticals), and then click the rotate button.

To correct lens distortion, there is Filters>Distorts>Lens distortion. There is also a Gimp plugin based on the Lensfun library and database, but it's only for Linux so far.
