How to Change the Perspective in Photoshop Perspective Warp
Hi there in this video, we're going to learn how to use perspective warp to do this see all the weed lines heading off in all sorts of directions. Really presto he's all straight. That's one of the typical uses for perspective warp. Another use though is this this is my original container but I need to turn in a different direction. Imagine if you could go back in time and move it around, that is the perspective warp tool in adobe Photoshop, go and learn how to use it now. Alright, these two files are going to be perspective warp one and to not crop though, we're going to be doing kind of a similar thing. So let's start with the perspective what one and in this case the lens to get this shot with all the background, you can see it's kind of distorted the lines here so nothing's really straight. So this is a perfect option for edit perspective warp to be fancy. Okay, we should convert it into a smart object first, then we can turn that effect on and off later. So edit perspective warp a...
nd what you do is you just click once anywhere that gives you your first kind of plain just drag the corners. So you're kind of covering the kind of covering exactly covering one face of the church. Okay, I'm just dragging this around and the way I'm kind of lining it up is obviously there's a clear line down the bottom here in the dirt but then there's this other bull of thirds here. So I'm dragging that around because I really want you see there. Now I feel like that's a straight line or a straight plane across it. I want to get the cross in. I just miss about it until you feel like these lines or align with, you can see that one there aligns with the roof of the roof line there. Now we want this other plane over here, easiest way again is just a click ones over here and just drawing these up. You joined the first one up and it just snaps to it. Then spend a bit of time lining that up. The same thing I want. It's easy to line this bottom one up. I want to make sure that this guide here kind of aligns with the roof and that should give me some sort of shape and basically just tells Photoshop what the two planes were dealing with. So there's two phases, there's loud which we just did and then you move to warp and this is where the magic happens. What I want to do is I want to say all these lines, I want you to be straight up and down. Now it works really good with just boxes, but because this is a church and there's a pitched roof and there's a little bit of weirdness going on here. I'm just kind of fudge it by lifting this up a bit, you can see, I can kind of really manipulate real life. Like I've turned this thing around when you finish either click the tick or hit return. Let's turn the let's turn the smart folder on and off. Cool. Huh? Let's look at another example. Okay, this container here could be the most perfect example of this because it's nice and square things aren't square. Things can get a little weird. And also so you know, if there's a person standing in front of this, they're going to get distorted and it's not going to be that realistic. So there's kind of like a perfect storm that needs to happen for this tool to be amazing. But it's definitely good enough. But when the example is right, this tool is pretty amazing. Watch this. So here we go. Here we go. Okay, so there's my first plane. I should be more perfect with it. You can click once and then just drag him into it. Another little trick is click and drag and just get it close. You'll see those two lines get highlighted and will snap to it. So here we go, my friend, Here we go my friends instead of just straightening it up, which is not what I want to do. Now that is nice and straight. What I want to do is try and turn it around. I'm gonna switch from layout to what what I can do is a little trick is I can hold down, shift and click on this line here. You can see it kind of locks it into my straight up and down plain and it means whenever I drag one of these, can you see the top one comes along for the ride as well. You can see I can kind of turn this thing around grab you, there's a little bit of like tongue out. How's this looking? You can see I can kind of make it look like the container was actually facing the other way when it was photographed. How good is that? I forgot to turn it into a smart object so I'm going to click return on my keyboard. You saw it there already? The whole thing's turned around. I'm gonna use my undo that way that way that way that way go on. Let's jump back to this one here and finish it up because I want to fill this with content aware fill. Okay but I can't because it's a smart object, I'm gonna have to destroy all my good work. I'm going to right click it. I'm going to go to this one that says rasta rise layer, gets rid of all my hard work but now I'm gonna use my rectangle marquee tool just to draw a couple of quick boxes holding shift key to add to the selection. I should use the lasso tool being lazy. You've seen this before. Anyway let's go to edit. It's gonna fill. Content aware fill. Magic. Lovett nature. It does so well with nature right? Content aware fill? Just kind of like magic set up, but teaching this for ages and I'm still super impressed. Alright, that is perspective warp. One thing before I go, it can be really good for internal shots as well. So if you've got say the internal view of a house or a room can be a nice way of straightening up the walls if like this image that being distorted, but as soon as you add like big objects in the middle of the room or especially people or recognizable objects that can't look kind of smeared like these windows smeared just fine. They can be changed angles and they're fine. But if there was a person they were slightly wider than they were meant to be, it just doesn't work. So keep it in your tool kit for those times that you need it quick and easy to use, but it doesn't work perfect every time. Let's get on to the next video.
