    how to rotate less than 90 degrees?

    I want to use WLPG as my exclusive photo editing software but I can't find
    how to rotate (straighten) a photo less than 90 degrees. Am I missing
    something!??

    No, WLPG doesn't have a 'straighten' facility. It's been requested many
    times and if you add your voice to the MS feedback page, it may get
    incorporated in a future release.

    Meanwhile, you may want to install IrfanView. It is a superb and
    incredibly speedy image viewer for many more filetypes than WLPG copes
    with. However, the interface is nowhere near as good as WLPG otherwise
    everyone would be using that instead!

    The point is, though, that you can very easily use IrfanView to do your
    straightening. Once you've installed IrfanView, WLPG will notice that
    it's there and list it on the "Open" menu. Then all you do is when you
    want a picture straightening is to go Open> IrfanView, Ctrl-U, 2, <Enter>,
    Ctrl-S and you're back in WLPG with a straightened image.

    If your guess of 2 degrees wasn't correct, before you hit Ctrl-S in
    IrfanView, simply undo the straightening and try again by going Ctrl-Z,
    Ctrl-U, 3, <enter>

    It's fast and it's convenient.

    Thanks for the tip. Yes, I really hope they consider adding a straighten
    function in the next version.
