Chapter 9. Creative Imaging in Photoshop > Working with the Vanishing Point Fea...

Working with the Vanishing Point Feature

New in Photoshop CS2, Vanishing Point is perhaps one of the tools that will encourage users of previous versions of Photoshop to upgrade. You have already been introduced to the Clone Stamp tool, which you use to clone part of an image in order to fill in an area or cover up a blemish. Cloning gets difficult when you have to account for the change in visual perspective in the image. One aspect of perspective is that the eye perceives objects in a scene that are further away as appearing smaller. The Vanishing Point feature lets you identify the angle of perspective in an image so that the Clone Stamp tool will follow that perspective when cloning your image.

To use the Vanishing Point tool, your image must be in RGB color mode. Other color modes currently do not support editing with this filter. If you are working in another color mode, try converting your image to RGB and then using the Vanishing Point tool. After applying the filter, change your mode back to where you need it. Be aware that converting color modes can affect the look of the image significantly.
