- Here's a street scene…and here's a banner advertising Affinity Photo…and I want to put this banner onto the side of this bus.…So let's zoom in on this area.…And now let's choose the Perspective tool…down at the bottom of the toolbar.…We want just a single plane,…which I want to make it wrap around a corner.…
We grab one of these corners…and we drag it to where we want it.…And of course it's going to go haywire at first,…but then as we gradually get each corner…into its correct position,…we'll find that it makes much more sense.…To hide that grid, we can either press the space bar…which gives us the pan tool so I can pan it around…or we can just turn off the grid on here…and that gives us a very good perspective match…of this poster for the side of the bus.…
We just hit Apply…and there it is in place.…Let's zoom out so we can see the whole image.…Here's a slightly different example.…I want to adjust the perspective of this car…so it matches the street better…and we can do this two-point perspective…in a slightly different way, but with the same tool.…
