…Sometimes as you're working with footage, the…wide angle distortion will get in the way.…Now you could sometimes turn to automatic camera…profiles, but if this wide angle distortion is introduced…with other problems, like low angle shooting or…off angle shooting, you're going to have to go manual.…Now let me show you how powerful Photoshop is.…I'll go ahead and convert this here to a Smart Object,…and I'd like to thank my friend Jesse for letting me borrow…his shot.…Let's go ahead here and convert this to Adaptive Wide Angle.…And this allows you to draw some lines.…
So I'll start by drawing a line that's already fairly straight.…And then I can go after some lines that aren't so straight.…Now, in this case, if it doesn't auto-detect, you can just pull that over,…to trace the curved line.…And when you do, you'll notice how the shot becomes straight.…And if it's not, you can always dial that in with the rotation handles,…to finesse em, and that's what these…handles are here, that control that circle.…So you can go through and take any lines that seem to lack straightness and fix it.…
