Steps

  1. 1
    We already have Photoshop open, which we have done by pressing the blue and black icon in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen.
    We have a photo open as well. Either create or new document or open an existing one, which has been demonstrated in other video tutorials on this website. We'll be editing David Bowie in this video, as there are quite a good mixture of colors in his photo.

    We've clicked on the layer we want to edit on the right-hand side of the screen.
    It's currently just the one background layer, but if there are several, click on it until it turns blue.

    On the right-hand side, we can click and change the type of "Correction", whether that will be "Fisheye", "Perspective", "Auto" or "Full Spherical".

    It continues to update the photo in the main window each time that we click on an option.

    Click on the second tool in the top left-hand corner.

    We can now adjust the image by pulling and dragging on the dots.
