I use the crop tool to straighten an image.

Clear any settings in the crop tool and creat a smaller selection. Then find something in the picture that is level and rotate the crop window to match. Expand the crop window to get as much of the picture as you want/need and hit enter.
Use high magnification to be able to rotate in small increments.

A big thank you to all that have posted tips here. For many of us lurkers who are just getting started it shows the power of PS and also some tricks to try with other tools to see what it does.

Thanks again,
