CS6 Adaptive Wide Angle

Postby biggerry on Sun Aug 12, 2012 9:15 pm

I recently lamenting the fact that I had a poorly composed a shot of a lighthouse resulting in some silly lookign distortion, i remembered earlier PS version had a neat perspective feature where you could effectively tilt the image and do some neat stuff with distortion correction. Hence, i though i would try and salvage my bendy lighthouse..

Well as it happens, CS6 has a new feature called Adaptive Wide angle, in a nutshell it allows you to (in perspective mode) to draw lines to define vertical and horizontal parts of a image, its cool since you can define several points to be vertical so you can adjust say, the lighthouse on the right (and the vertical of the far wall) but also the football posts on the left and also the horizontal line of the roof.

This may be old hat for some of ya's, however I got mildly excited, now to wait for it to be incorporated into CNX :wink:

Very cool - thanks Gerry - I had the same issue with a few from the same morning - I might have to look at this and see how it compares to the stuff built into Lightroom.

Very nice; multiple vertical points would be very useful. I wonder whether I can straighten one of my old panos with it. It's got a jello horizon.

yes, its pretty amazing, i reckon it could straighten a wonky tree ! for the jello horizon, you can simply just add curved lines along each curve and then tell it they are meant to be horizontal.

That distortion control looks pretty good!

Gerry

Thanks for this. I'd not looked at this feature. It's something that's been in DxO Optics Pro for years and I used it a fair bit there. These days I tend to stick with LR, PS and Nik plugins so maybe now that Adobe has "borrowed" that feature I will be able to steer clear of DxO.
