Learn about using the RAW distortion controls
- [Narrator] The whole church appears…to be leaning back slightly, and that's because…it was photographed from a low angle.…But we can fix that.…Let's open our lens distortion studio.…If we had a pin cushion or barreling effect…we could drag right and left to fix this.…We have a very slight effect so I'll leave it…round about there minus 4%,…which sorts out most of those issues.…
Let's have a look at the horizontal and vertical distortion.…If we drag the vertical slider,…we can drag it right to tilt the church away from us…and drag it left to straighten it up.…That's a very much cleaner appearance.…We can rotate it left and right…to get the verticals truly vertical.…Because we're now losing some portions around the edge,…we need to scale it up slightly…just to hide those empty corners.…
We'll rotate it back a fraction more,…and that's looking much better.…When we zoom in,…we can see some fringing around these harsh areas…between the building and the sky.…This is a problem with a camera lens.…It happens easily; it's easy to fix.…
