Working with photoshop cs4 and given the image below, I need to measure the angle marked by the red line and turn the other figure. The objective is to have 5 similar figures in perfect circle, this means at the exact same distance each other. The final result should look like a round.

What would be the most efficient, correct method of doing this?

  • Have you a possiblity to visit in Illustrator? There are easy methods to place shapes along curves and form exactly aligned groups.

Use the Ruler Tool and pen the **Measurement Log ** (Window > Measurement Log).

Click-drag with the Ruler Tool along the path to measure. Then click the Record Measurement button on the Log Panel. All the way on the right side, the Angle at which you dragged will be logged. enter image description here

This is, after all, just a click-drag. So, it is far from being absolutely precise because it relies on the user to drag correctly.

  • so rotating by that value the other image should line up? May 19 '17 at 11:27
  • Yes if you are accurate when you drag to create the measurement. Generally you have to zoom in and try a couple times.
