Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng, VC
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to adjust perspective of an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
First, click "Filters". It's in the horizontal menu along the top of the screen.
Move the cursor to "Light and Shadow" in the menu.
In the expanded menu, click "Perspective...". A dialogue box will appear.
You can adjust the "Angle" value. You can do it by clicking and dragging the scroller to the right or left. You can also type a value into the text box to the right of the scroller.
You can change the "Relative distance of horizon" and "Relative length of shadow" values. You can do it by typing values into the text boxes or by clicking the up and down arrows.
You can change the "Blur radius" value. You can do it by clicking and dragging the scroller, by typing a value, or by clicking the arrows.
Change the "Color" by double-clicking the color box. Then, you can select the color. The default setting is black.
You can also change the "Opacity" percentage. You can do that by using the scroller, the text box, or the arrows. It's recommended to leave the "Opacity" value around 70 % - 80 % for the most natural look.
Click the drop-down menu next to "Interpolation".
You can click "Linear", "Cubic", or "None" in the drop-down menu.
You can click "Reset" to return to the default settings.
If you are satisfied with your changes, click "OK" to apply them to the image. A green bar will run across the bottom of the window to show that the changes are being applied.
If you have a layer with the perspective shadow effect, you can move it to front and see how it affects the image.
