Photo distortion correction in Lightroom, upright

Automatic Image distortion correction in Lightroom

The new upright correction allows photographers to automatically adjust keystoning and distortions. Its a very easy to use and powerful tool. Colin shows how it’s also useful for people wanting to create 3D textures and custom brushes.

There are some major issues  that can happen to Photographs because the use a rounded lens. As you tilt the lens, these distortions can be exaggerated, commonly called lans distortion, the main ones are:

  1. Barreling: Rounding or swelling of Photographs, to resemble a barrel shape
  2. Keystone AKA Tomb stoning: Exaggerated Perspective: like a projector that is on an angle, where the top is smaller than the bottom of the image.
  3. Tilting: Where the horizon isn’t level

These common afflictions can be caused by carelessness, wide angle lenses, or just the inability to position the camera in the idea location. Lightroom can fix these common issues with a single click using the amazing Upright feature. Watch this video and see how easy it is to use.
