Q&A

Q1:How do you know when to skew, when to distort, and when to use perspective? They all seem to do similar things.
A1: When you know that a transformation is needed but you aren't sure what kind, use Edit, Free Transform. You can also access it by pressing Command+T (for Macintoshes) or Control+T (for PCs). This command places a similar box around the object to be transformed, but it lets you rotate, distort, drag the object in any direction, or do whatever seems necessary.
Q2:What happens if I make a number of transformations and then change my mind about them later?
A2: Using Photoshop's History menu, you can go back and undo some or all of these operations. Just go back to the state before the transformations.
Q3:How can I tell when I've straightened the horizon enough?
A3: The horizon is level, so dragging a guide line from the ruler at the top of the picture will give you something to judge it against. Remember, you can use fractions of a degree by typing their decimal equivalents. Half a degree is .5, and so on.
