…can make the difference between appearing impressive to your audience or seeming sloppy with your digital marketing graphics.
And in today’s post, we’re going to show you how to fix image perspective for any image you use for your visual marketing.
Let’s dive in!
Why Should You Fix Your Image Perspective?
Fixing your image’s perspective before using it for your business is vital to controlling the quality of what you show to your audience.
These images are, after all, a key representation of your business and what it offers.
This tutorial on how to fix image perspective will work best with photos that have a lot of straight lines like:
- packaging shots,
- boxes, or
Basically, all the things that will be glaringly obvious if misaligned.
Steps On How To Fix Image Perspective Using Photoshop
Step 1: Let’s go ahead and open Photoshop and then load our image. For this guide, let’s start with this photo.
You can see the angle is a bit off and if we drag a ruler here on these windows, you can see they’re not even straight.
It happens, and what’s great about Photoshop is that images like these are easy to fix.
Step 2: So let’s start by making sure your image layer isn’t locked, and if it is, just double click the layer and you’re good.
Now click Edit and click Perspective warp.
Step 3: Afterward, with your mouse, drag one side of the building all the way to its edge and drag these four nodes to the house’s perimeter.
Then do the same for the other side.
Step 4: Once every node is in each of the object’s points, press Enter on your keyboard.
And once you do that, the image attaches itself to the nodes.
And then, each point manipulates the angle of the part of the object it is assigned to. If you drag one node, the image follows.
Step 5: So for this image, we can fix the image perspective by correcting these vertical edges and straightening them.
To do that we just need to hover over the line, hold shift on your keyboard and then click. This will automatically straighten this line.
Let’s do the same thing for the remaining 2 edges, and it’s fixed.
Just like that our image looks much less distorted!
Let’s try out this image next.
Again, we’re seeing vertical lines that aren’t straight.
So let’s follow the same process we just did with our previous image to fix its image perspective, and we’re done!
That’s it for today’s quick guide on how to fix image perspective using Photoshop.
