2. Rotate is possible at 90° steps.

Thanks, but just for convenience, I would like to be able to tweak and straighten slightly tilted horizons within SPP without exporting TIFFs to Photoshop Elements.

3. How much darker do you want the blacks? Are you using the Shadow slider now?

I find that on many shots I am converting to 16-bit TIFF, taking them into Lightroom and then doing nothing other than taking the 'Blacks" slider dowm to the -20 to -30 range in the Develop module. It gives a kind of contrast boost, but leaves 90% of the pixels unchanged.

Using Shadow and negative Fill Light - in any combination - I can't find an equivalent workflow to replicate that effect in SPP (yet). I am open to suggestions, however.
