Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to use "Perspective Tool" in GIMP in Windows 7.
You should have the program open and an image ready to use.
You can refer to our other tutorials to find out exactly how to do that.
First, click the "Perspective Tool" in "Toolbox".
You can also press "Shift" + "P" on the keyboard.
You can also find the tool by clicking "Tools" in the horizontal menu at the top of the window.
Then, move the cursor to "Transform Tools" in the drop-down menu.
In the expanded menu, click "Perspective".
Your canvas will now appear with a grid. Your cursor will also change, and you will be able to see the pivot point that is located in the center of the window. It is a grey circle. A dialogue box will appear to show you how you have manipulated the shape.
You can click the corners or anywhere within the image.
With a point selected, drag with your mouse to change the perspective.
Experiment with the tool to get the shape you want.
Click "Transform" to apply your changes when you've finished.
The effect will be applied to the shape.
The canvas or the image might need further adjustments in overall dimensions.
