You're watching VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how you can edit perspective in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.


Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should already have Photoshop opened
    .
    This is indicated by the blue icon with the letters "PS" at the bottom.

    Then, we can either create a new document or open an existing one
    .
    There are other VisiHow videos on how to do that. We can see that an existing document has been opened in the tutorial. We can see that there are several layers on the right-hand side.

    We also ensure that the layer is not locked

    It should not have the padlock icon on the right-hand side.

    We press "Ctrl" and "T" on our keyboard

    This will bring up the free transform option.

    We can see now that we can adjust our image by clicking and dragging the squares around the layer
    .
    There is another VisiHow video on how to do that.

  10. 10
    We can see that if we drag the corners, the image will be adjusted to have its perspective changed in quite an easy way
    .
    We can do that by moving up, down, and so on.

  11. 11
    Other good options for "Perspective" are "Skew" or "Distort"
    .
    There are other VisiHow videos about those effects. However, "Skew" and "Distort" may be more limiting or more fiddly, depending on for what we are going, whereas "Perspective" is very simple for changing and editing the perspective.

    Once we are satisfied with the changes, we click the check at the upper right-hand side
    .
    This will add the changes.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We can click the circle with a line through it
    .
    This will cancel the changes and return the image to how it was before.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    In this video, the check is clicked
    .
    Photoshop will edit the image. We can't adjust it very easily to get back how it was before unless we undo.
