FWIW I use the crop tool in PSP to help with this.  Generally if I am rotating
the image, it's because the horizon is slightly off level.  I create an
outline using the crop tool with a side close to the line of the horizon,
and this gives me a reference to judge whether the rotation has worked.
 The PSP crop tool doesn't behave like the selection tool, so it's safe
to use in this way - otherwise you'd be rotating the selection.  You can
rotate by fractions of a degree - although I've never bothered with less
than 0.5.

Even a small amount of rotation will lose a lot of the edges of the image,
so it's worth getting your camera level! :)
