    Hi all,

    I'm trying out the new Lightroom beta - and, as an Aperture user, I don't know where a lot of the controls are. :)

    I have a few pictures that need to be rotated counter-clockwise by a few degrees. I've found the controls that rotate it in 90 degree increments; but of course that's not what I want. I'm probably just using the wrong search terms (e.g. "rotate") when I try to use the help, but - could someone tell me how I rotate an image by an arbitrary number of degrees?

    Thanks!

    Use the Crop Overlay (in Develop mode):

    Then use the Straighten slider or just drag it round from the corners:

    pushing " R " on the keyboard is the shortcut for croping and rotating.
