Use Adaptive Wide Angle in PhotoShop CS6

Edited by Freya, Rushell, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how to use the Adaptive Wide Angle on Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7.


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.

  5. 5
    This will open a new window, where we'll have the option to zoom in by pressing the plus sign in the bottom left corner
    .

  6. 6
    We can zoom out by pressing the minus sign
    .

  7. 7
    We can click on a percentage as well or one of the views at the bottom of that list, such as "Fit to Screen"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We have the "Constraint Tool" selected in the top left-hand corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    When we hover over the photo, we have a cross
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    On the right-hand side, we can click and change the type of "Correction", whether that will be "Fisheye", "Perspective", "Auto" or "Full Spherical"
    .
    This will depend on the style desired.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    We can also move the scroller to change the "Scale", which will make the image smaller or larger
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    We can also just type a number
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We can change the "Focal Length" as well by clicking and dragging or typing a number
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We can do the same with the "Crop Factor"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    It continues to update the photo in the main window each time that we click on an option
    .
    It can sometimes take some time for Photoshop to process the information, but feel free to play around with each of the options.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Try clicking and dragging across the actual image
    .

    This will bring up a circle which can be used to edit and manipulate the image
    .

  18. 18
    Clicking and dragging from one of the white dots rotates the image slightly
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Click on the second tool in the top left-hand corner
    .
    This is the "Polygon Constraint Tool", and it works in a similar way. However, we will now draw out a shape instead of just using a line.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Click on the image and use connecting lines to make a shape, such as the rectangle we've drawn on the image of David Bowie
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    We can now adjust the image by pulling and dragging on the dots
    .
    This is a good way to subtly straighten an image. It all depends on what end result is desired.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Again, we can change these aspects on the right-hand side, depending on what it is we would like to create
    .

  23. 23
    The next tool on the top left-hand side is the "Move Tool"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    With this, we can click on the image and move it around
    .
    The cursor looks the same arrow button as on the top of the toolbar.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Next is the "Hand Tool"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    This tool is used to move the image slightly when we are zoomed in closer
    .
    We can drag and move to the area we want to focus on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    The final tool is the "Zoom Tool", which we can use to zoom in and out on the image

  29. 29
    Press "Cancel" at the top right-hand side of the screen to revert any changes and return to the original picture, or press "OK" to apply the changes
