Part II: Simple Corrections > Straightening, Skewing, and Distorting an Image

Hour 10. Straightening, Skewing, and Distorting an Image

You’ve probably seen hundreds of snapshots of buildings that look like they could easily tip over and horizons that appear to run downhill. It happens, and most of the time it’s unavoidable. The photographer may have been standing on the deck of a bouncing boat, or on the side of a hill. The “tiltin’ Hilton” effect is caused not by shoddy construction but by wide-angle lenses that make vertical objects at the edges of the photo lean toward the middle. What separates pros from amateurs is that pros know how to fix these little details, and they never show off their work without doing whatever it takes to make the picture perfect.

  • Level your horizons

  • Straighten selected areas of an image
