Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using adaptive wide-angle controls to remove distortion in an image, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- Sometimes lens profiles aren't enough.…You'll find that the image has…some really strange perspective issues or distortion.…This is often the case when you're shooting…at a dramatic angle or from the side.…Typical lens profiles really can't compensate.…You'll also find if you stitch a panoramic photo together,…the Adaptive Wide Angle command can also be helpful.…It's only available in Photoshop,…and it's a pretty hardcore filter,…so let's jump in on a couple of different examples…and I'll show you how it works.…I'll just drag these here and place them into Photoshop.…
Three of these are stills and one's a video file.…Let's start with the still images.…In this particular one, there's a lotta curvature here…and I'm shooting from off angle.…I also have some strong diagonal lines…that I'd like to tweak.…To start, I'll immediately convert this to a smart object…and then take advantage of the Lens Corrections controls.…This was shot on a GoPro 4 with the Silver Edition.…
Now, that did a nice job of fixing a lot of the distortion,…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
