Crop Angled Images to Straighten Perspective Cropping Photoshop
Hi there, this video, we're going to look at cropping tool but the perspective cropping tool, we're going to fix corrections say in this building here so it looks nice and straight now like we were photographing it from straight on, we'll even go a bit further and remove this kind of lens distortion here where it's kind of bending just to tidy it up. Then we'll crop it right in to be a nice cool brick wall, super flat, super straight. Alright, let's jump in now and learn how to do it All right from your 05 cropping folder, grab perspective crop one and 2. We're gonna start with number one and it's just for images like it's really hard to get, especially when your photographing say something on the wall, you want it to be perfectly straight. Okay. Maybe it's for a look book or or photographs of arts might be a poster, a billboard, something that you want to be straight but it's just not, I've got a really kind of extreme angle here but often it's just something that I'm just trying to g...
et right in front of. I like my camera up and there's still just a little bit of perspective, especially when you're photographing something large, like a billboard, just can't help the perspective. So we're going to use this tool here, click and hold down the crop tool until you find the perspective crop tool and all you need to do is click on all the edges, how accurate this is you spend on this zooming in and kind of getting it perfect the generally they're nicer. Well the nicer result, we're going to give that wheel, look at all four corners hit return on your keyboard and then you go straightens it up. This is a strange image, I think it is meant to be this tall, okay because the front looks fine if you find yours like super tall and skinny you can either undo and go back and try and get in the corners a little better or just kind of stretch it out a little bit which brings me at a cool little shortcut. Is I know that crop tool is C. But so is perspective course is also the shortcut. See how do I toggle between them if you hold the shift key down on your keyboard and tap the so I know that V. Is the move to see is the crop tool, but if I keep hitting C. It doesn't go through like the rest of them. You hold shift and see and it just toggles through all the, you can see them, they're holding shift tapping, see toggles through them all. And that's true of any of them. So I do a lot for the rectangle marquee tool which is M for the marquee tool but if you hold shift em you can see it toggles through between the elliptical and the rectangle marquee tool anyway so shift, see until you get to the crop tool and just just going to expand it out. I hold all when I drag the sides. That's all to the PC or option on a Mac just so it goes equal distant both sides. And I'm just gonna use my transform just to kind of decide how I feel it was when I photographed. It's not my photograph but sometimes there can be a little bit of this just tweaking to get it perfect. Let's look at another example this one here, so perspective crop to and this is a building. It's just you know, it's impossible to get it kind of flush on because we don't have a cherry picker or the right lens. So I just want to straighten it up. We're going to follow these lines. I'm going to click once up here click ones. They're quick ones down here trying to follow the edges on all four corners. If you get it wrong you can just drag these things afterwards and when you're ready click return on your keyboard and kind of just straightens it up like you're looking straight on this particular image because of the lens is a little bit of bowing in here. So a little extra trick if you're dealing with larger objects as you can fix them up using the filter and the one that says lens correction now, if you've photographed this, what can happen is that the data from the JP comes through and it tells you the camera model the lens the settings, the f stop all of that and if it does, it can do some automatic settings to kind of to fix what you're working on ours doesn't. So I want to turn on the grid down the bottom here so that we can kind of see that you see it kind of bows out there so just to fix the lens distortion, quick and easy, click on this top option here, it says remove distortion and basically you either drag towards the center or out of the center. Okay to get either more fisheye or less fish. I okay, so I'm dragging out, you can see it's kind of going the other way I'm going to drag it back. I'm holding my mouse down the whole time, just little steps and I'm just trying to match the grid so it was bowing out now. Slowly but surely you can see there now. I've got a nice straight edge. Their strategy, they're a little bit off over here and that's just my fault for not spending a bit more time with the perspective crop. Okay, I just kind of clicked around the outside. I can fix that now by just clicking around the edges again, but being a lot straighter around here, let's say we just want to clip on the inside of this. I don't want any of the, I just want the straight up brickwork, so I'm gonna be a lot more perfect along there when he needs just a little tweak, don't be afraid to zoom in dan return. And now we've got a kind of a perfectly straight wall so that's the perspective crop tool project, might be laying on the ground up on the wall and we added a little bit of extra when we looked at lens correction and lens correction doesn't have to be used just when you're using this perspective crop, you can use lens correction for any image. Alright, let's get into the next video.
