Driver's door needs adjusting

Taking more effort in closing driver door. The casual slight effort no longer works and leaves a crack in the door.
Anyone knows the adjustment points...?
I'll check newtis.

Yesterday, I felt it! While in the driver's seat and arm on the arm rest...closing the door slowly...I felt the door henge connect. And I felt the door to slightly move upwards to connect. This means the door is ever so slightly is -sagging- ...makes sense! Understandable! However, you can not see it! Accept for the two scrap marks in the door jam. And when closing the door and it doesn't latch with little effort. Now to find out how to lift the door ever so slightly....

There is adjustment at the hinges. Mark hinges (and check gaps) BEFORE adjusting so you know where you started from.

Yeah, from the looks of it...small reorientation needed for the "strike plate"? I'll try that.
