Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Drawing the diagonals, part of Creating Perspective with Photoshop.
We've seen how the Perspective Crop tool appears to place the center point marker …in the wrong location. Now we'll look at exactly why it does …that, and we'll see how to fix it. The answer is to draw in diagonals. …Let's make a new layer, and I'll call this diagonals. …We can use the shapes tool, set to drawing pixels and sketch it on diagonals. …I'll pick a nice bright color for this. And we can draw these, let's draw them …within the frame area. One between that pair of corners and …another between the second pair of corners.…
Now lets see what happens when we use the crop tool once again. …We can start by drawing a crop rectangle between the corners of this frame. …And I'm not going right to the outside of the frame, because we're also seeing the …edge in here. The perspective check box remains ticked …because that's how we last left this dialog. …Let's move this one across, and the bottom one.…
And we can see If we adjust this slightly, now our corners match up with …the extension to the diagonal lines we drew, on the inner frame. …
