There was a thread AGGGEs ago, about how to make an angled photo flat, using photoshop, if anyone wants to give a quick demo, id really apreciate it.

 

And i would have used search, but i didnt know what to actually search for.

Ok what you want to do... (in Photoshop)

 

You can use the angular lasso tool, and select the angled part you want to be square to the viewer. Once selected, go to edit, free transform (control T). This will give you a new set of lines around your selection. What you do with this is, select the black arrow tool, hold down the ctrl key (apple key for mac) and the arrow will turn grey and itll loose its tail. Then grab (while holding down) the corners and drag them into a rectangle shape that you want your image to be (perportions that is). Then hit enter once your happy.

 

Thats it.

I guess your post isnt really informative so each one of us has its own understanding of the problem.

 

In any way, if you mean that you shot pictures with lets say a 20mm lens and you wanna get rid of the 'fisheye' effect, i cant tell you how.

The distort technique is OK, but it can force some pretty rough anti-aliasing if your image isn't of high enough quality. There is another way that skirts this problem.

 

On later versions of PS, say 7 and the CS pair, you can use the crop tool to force perspective as well. See below:

1. Click the CROP tool and use it to select your whole image.

 

2. Make sure the Perspective box is checked (only available in later versions).

 

3. Click and drag one (or more) corner to that the selection line is parallel to the line(s) you want to be straight.

 

Hit return.

 

Photoshop pulls the image into forced perspective and maintains the quality. Sure, you'll lose a little of your image from the crop, but that would get cut anyway if you want the thing to look respectable.

 

Keep in mind, this is all Mac... PC may be different. But if you're on a PC trying to work with Photoshop, you deserve all the headaches.
