Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Vanishing Point: Setting up the grid and using the Stamp tool, part of Working with Perspective in Photoshop.
Another way that I can repair an object in perspective is to use the Vanishing Point filter. The Vanishing Point filter will allow you to do repairs directly in a perspective grid. It just requires you to create a grid and then your repair tools will follow that grid when painting. To access this feature, simply go up to Filter and Vanishing Point. First, I'm going to use the create plane tool to draw four points and create my grid. It's easier sometimes to draw the grid on a smaller surface, and then expand as needed. In this case, I'm going to be working on the purple house again, so I'm going to use the visual elements of the house trim to create my grid.
Simply click on the four corners, and it will automatically start to create a grid. Now, I can't see the fourth corner up on the top right, so I'm going to zoom out a little bit and use the two sides to match up my grid. And there's my perspective grid. If I create a grid that's unnatural, the grid will turn red, meaning that it's unusable. If you're faced with this, simply grab a corner and adjust until you get a new grid. Once I have the grid completed, my tools are located on the left hand side.
The first tool I'm going to use is the stamp tool. This is similar to the clone stamp tool outside of Photoshop, where I designate an area to repair from, and then paint into the area I want to repair to. Holding down the Alt or Option key, I designate my source, and then come over and match it up with my image. Use your bracket keys to reduce the brush size or enlarge as needed, and paint over your image. As you go through, you can use the clone stamp tool, and it will follow the perspective grid.
