In February we introduced our Perspective Crop Helper Tool. In this session we want to show how helpful perspective correction can be and also one extra useful helper step.
We liked the scene with the old black truck just in front of the historic San Francisco Mission Police station. Unfortunately the perspective was quite a bit off. Here are our steps to improve the situation.
1. Using the DOP Perspective Crop helper tool
The perspective is improved but we find the car a bit too much stretched.
2. Scaling the photo
We use the Photoshop Scale tool to shrink the truck in the horizontal dimension.
Scale the image
This got us to the final result:
The Photoshop Scale tool can help to correct proportion in an image. We are not aiming for what is right here but for a proportion we like best.
