Kita, thanks for taking a look!

Is that something that can be accomplished in photoshop?

Yea, somewhere in PS (don't remember where, and am not at a computer with PS, right now), there is a perspective correction function. It basically virtually "tips" the whole image, effectively allowing you to verticle correct the converging lines caused by the camera being tilted up when the image was captured. You would then just crop to return to a rectaliner overall image.

It's kinda fun to play with, for all kinds of reasons, but your image could use it for what it was intended to go.:-)

Depending on if you have Elements or CS its in a different menu but they both have it.



Check Edit > Transform > Skew, Perspective, or Distort optionsin CS.

I use the Skew option mostly but that isn't always the best option depending on what you are trying to fix. Perspective and Distort will also do similar but different actions. You will also need to crop a little of the picture afterward to get it square again, depending on how much you changed.

http://www.usd.edu/trio/tut/ps/transform2/describes it better than I do.


I also recommend using theGuidesoption in CS to drag a straight line over tocheck how well you lined up your change. Elements, you have to find a Guides plugin to get that tool.

the shot with perspective correction is better

i think this shot would suit very concerntrated directional lighting, or possibly some natural light spilling in from a window with the rest dark
