Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video The Adaptive Wide-Angle filter, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
In this movie, I'll demonstrate another new filter called Adaptive Wide…Angle that's designed to take the distortion out of fisheye and other…wide-angle photographs.…Now, it works best if the image contains lens data, but that's not absolutely…essential and I'll show examples of both kinds of images.…This image does contain lens data.…Now, happily Adaptive Wide Angle is applicable to Smart Objects.…So I'm going to go ahead and convert this background to a Smart Object and I'll…rename it something along the lines of city hall and then I'll go up to the…Filter menu and choose Adaptive Wide Angle.…
And because we're applying it to a smart object, we won't harm the original and…we can edit our settings any time we like.…Now, when you first enter the filter, your image may look more distorted than…ever, and that's because I have Correction set to Auto.…I could set it to Fisheye, so that Photoshop and I are on the same page and that…does apply some pincushioning, but it's not the look I'm going for.…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
