Quickly rotate your canvas view in Photoshop

PhotoshopAdobe added a handy feature to Photoshop CS4 with the rotate canvas tool, which allows you to temporarily rotate your view of the canvas on screen without actually rotating the physical document. You can quickly rotate the canvas no matter what tool you currently have selected simply by holding down the R key for a second or two, then dragging your mouse to rotate the view.
