Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting lens distortion, part of Photoshop: Creating Perspective.
The Lens Correction filter in Photoshop is a great way to correct for all kinds …of distortions. But it does assume that we're working …with a full, uncropped image. When we crop the shot, as we've done …here, that's not going to work, we need a different approach. …Now, we can see the edge of this frame is a little uneven. …We can't square up the picture itself because it was painted a long time ago …and the paper on which it's printed wasn't square to start with.…
What we can do is get the frame square and then we know we're going to have the …image itself in the right proportions. Let's start by viewing our rulers, and we …can pull down guidelines and bring down one that matches the bottom of the top …edge of the frame. And let's bring in guidelines from the …side to the other side and another, to the very bottom.…
And because we know these guidelines are perfectly squared up, we can see that our …cropping has actually left it slightly out of true. …To distort this, we first need to turn the background into a regular layer. …
