What blue line?

What program are you using to build the model? Or, are you asking to straighten the photograph itself?

Oh, yes sorry.

I use the sketchup and I my photograph is a little twisted as I aligne it along the blue vertical line.
It looks like the photo hasn´t been taken straight. I would I be able to fix that?

Actually, it's not too difficult to correct perspective in a photograph.
See here.

ps. I hope I understood correctly.

oops, edit;
it should've been this link
http://hugin.sourceforge.net/tutorials/perspective/en.shtml
it's basically the same procedure but the first link works for 3 dimensions. This one is for correcting in 2 dimensions.
