I have a photo in photoshop I rotated it and I want the transform border to be straight and not rotated ( straight after rotation ) how can I do that? Thank everyone enter image description here

  • Are you saying you rotated, applied the transformation and now you want to reset the angle (rotation) back to 0? – Joonas Jan 15 at 9:22
  • yes, how can I do that? – Jabareen Jan 15 at 10:39

    Smart Objects remember the transformation values. So if you convert the layer into a smart object, rotate it and come back later, you can activate free transform and set the angle back to 0. – Joonas Jan 15 at 11:11
  • that is not I meant, if I rotated an item 30 degree for example and I want it to be my 0 angle, how can I do that? – Jabareen Jan 15 at 11:15

    Sorry, but I don't understand... – Joonas Jan 15 at 11:27

Sorry. This can not be done with standard layers - pixel or vector.

Once a pixel or vector object has been transformed (rotated) and that transformation has been committed, the bounding area has been reset. There is no feature or method to make the bounding box remain or reset to the original object prior the transformation.

Smart objects do remember rotation amounts. So you the bounding box remains tied to the overall shape in smart objects and will be seen as rotated if you later want to transform again.
