There are three ways to straighten horizons and fix leaning buildings in Lightroom.

  1. Use the crop tool to rotate the horizon
  2. Use the level tool to draw a guiding line along your horizon or vertical surface
  3. Use the Guided transform tool to fix both horizontal and vertical lines at the same time Рcorrects perspective control too.  Options 1 and 2 do not.
