Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting perspective with geometry controls, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] If you have a photo that looks off-kilter…from a perspective point of view,…you can sometimes correct that with the options…in the geometry panel in the edit controls.…A typical problem is…if you're shooting up at a high building,…the building may appear to be leaning back.…Or here, looking through this window,…the frame just looks a little distorted.…So in the geometry panel, I'm going to go to upright,…and in upright, I have several automatic choices.…I usually just run through these four automatic choices…and see if I like the result,…and if I do, I'll just stop there.…
So I'll try auto,…and in this case, that does a pretty good job…of squaring everything up.…I'm gonna put that back to off…just to show you the other options here.…Level just tries to level things horizontally.…Vertical tries to square things up vertically,…and full is similar to auto, but it does a more extreme job.…So often, auto is the best choice here.…Let's put that back to off, and let's try doing this…with some manual guidance using guided edit.…
