Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Photoshop CC feature: Perspective Warp, part of Photoshop: Working with Perspective.
A brand new feature in Adobe Photoshop CC is called Perspective Warp. Perspective Warp allows me to lay out grids inside of my image that allow me to edit my perspective planes independent of each other. To access this feature, I'm going to go to Edit > Perspective Warp. Simply drag out a grid along your perspective planes. To start the process, there are two pieces to this. The Layout up above and Warp found in your Control panel. After you've laid out your first initial grid, I'm going to drag a second grid from my right plane.
As I start to drag this out and I approach the right edge of my original plane, blue highlights will appear, meaning that they're ready to connect. Release, and they'll connect. Simply adjust to match your existing perspective plane. I'm going to do the same thing on the left side as well. As I approach the left edge, blue highlight will appear. Adjust as needed to match your perspective grid. After you've matched your grid, then switch over to Warp using the Control panel up above.
I can actually go in and grab one whole complete plane, or, by holding the Shift key, grab a couple planes at the same time to adjust. As I drag these pins, the perspective plane will change, independent of each other. Holding the Shift key will allow me to go in and move two planes at the same time. So I can lower the perspective on this and make it appear as if I was laying down on the ground when I shot this, instead of having this up above. If I have a little bit of building tilt, I can also adjust this as well, or widen the alley, or narrow the alley.
After completed, hit Enter or Return to accept your change. A really, really cool way to edit 3D without using the 3D features inside of Photoshop.
