Tilting bulding

Hello all,

I've a got a landscape / city scape picture with a church tower in the BG.
The tower is very slightly (really hard to notice...) tilted on the left. I'd like to adjust to make it straight.

What would be the best tool for that ? I thought about Liquify but I'm not sure it's good for architectural shapes.

It's an optical illusion tricking your eye.

Everything is straight.........

I am almost entirely self-taught and I don't know if this is the conventional method of doing it, but if it was me, I'd just select the tower, move it to a new layer, and use the "distort" thing from the Free Transform menu to drag the corners around until it looks good. That can leave you with some weird pixelation and blurring when you rasterize the layer again, but it's so small and far away that I think it would be fine for this particular image. Since the tower has very little pixel data anyway, not much would be lost.
I don't use Photoshop though, I use Affinity Photo. I don't know if Photoshop has a better tool for it. (It probably does, to be honest.)

Ehm, yeah I see your logic. It does make sens to do it that way.
I never heard of Affinity Photo.
