Sometimes when you shoot a photo, your camera’s position might be slightly off. This can lead to some unwanted perspective shifts in your image. Is there a way that you can straighten them out? In this video, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to fix the perspective of an image in Adobe Photoshop.
- Sometimes when you shoot a photo,…your camera's position might be slightly off.…Maybe you're shooting from a lower angle…and it's tilted up or off to the side.…In this case, you can get some unwanted perspective shift,…but Photoshop has some very powerful tools to fix this.…Let's go ahead and open up two images here.…And in this first image, I'll select the transform tool.…Remember, if you're not opening up a raw file,…you can apply this to an image using filter, camera raw.…
Now you'll see from the upright ability here,…we can choose a balanced adjustment…or force a horizontal leveling or a vertical leveling.…And it goes to the scene and attempts to fix the image.…Now, this last one can be very aggressive,…but you see that it completely removed…any of the wide angle aspects,…giving us perfectly clean horizontal and vertical lines.…You might have to re-crop the photo…after being this aggressive.…If that's too much for you,…the auto method tends to be pretty balanced,…or the horizontal method here works pretty well, too.…
