Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing distortion with Upright, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- A specific control built into Lightroom…and Adobe Camera Raw is Upright.…It's designed to fix perspective issues…and it's quite useful when working with wide angle footage.…You could choose to apply it to the footage itself…or combine this with Lens Profiles.…Let's start in Lightroom.…Let's start with those wide angle shots of Times Square.…From the Develop module I'm gonna make sure…that lens Profile Correction is turned on.…In both cases, that helps the shot quite a bit.…
Once you've got the profile assigned,…go back to the Basic tab.…Here you could take advantage of a few other options.…I always find it a good idea to Remove Chromatic Aberration…and then you'll notice controls for Upright.…You could choose to fix the Vertical areas of the photo.…And it attempted to remap that.…Now, that was pretty aggressive.…Full is gonna go after both the vertical and the horizontal.…Level makes a simple level photo,…and Auto is a nice balance correction.…
Let's go back to Off for a second.…You see by choosing Auto it leveled out…
