Can this be improved please?
« on: Monday 10 April 06 13:26 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

This is (obviously) a copy from a book. Unfortunately, like most book copies, it is not straight.

Is there anyway the writing could be reset straight on the page - please?

Many thanks
Di

Hi Di,

You know me try anything!!
It's not correct but wonder how/if you could open it in a document folder and adjust - I don't know how.
Straightened up the words a bit.

Cheers

Thanks Keith,

That's certainly a lot better than it was.

I tried in a Word Document as well and couldn't find any way of straightening the text.

As far as I could see, it meant retyping the document and that defeats the purpose.

Maybe someone else has some ideas.

Much appreciated

Pulled down the right hand side a bit so the writing is nearer horizontal.

I found a new option in Photoshop which allowed me to warp the image ;D

I copied the photo and pasted it as a new layer.  Then I did Edit > Free Transform.  There's a little button at the top which allows you to warp the image.
