it could be the paper stock of the magazine is too thin. I get this problem somtimes with cheaper mags and there's little to prevent it from happening. Fixing it requires some time consuming editing in Photoshop layering/painting/cloning, but most of the time it isn't worth it.

Use Edit > Transform > Rotate. Typically if I'm matching up two halves, the first half will be squared up using Rotate Canvas > Abritary.

When you select Rotate there's a crosshair in the center of the image you're about to edit, this can be moved to anywhere within the work space and acts as the pivot point.
Yes, I tried some card and it made an improvement for some but not others re. ghosting. I agree, it's the thin mag. paper.

Re. skew, I was meaning its use *after* any rotation. I don't get crosshairs for rotate--must be my older version of photoshop (cs2). I add guide(s) against which to align the image, for rotate or skew.
