Turn Telephoto Shots Into Wide Angle Shots

A little known trick is that you can use the Perspective Warp to make telephoto shots look like they were taken closer up with a wider lens. For this example, we used a photo of the Tokyo Tower that we got from Creative Market. Here’s how to do it. Draw three boxes taking up a third of the image.

Switch to Warp mode then hold the shift key and click on the vertical lines.

Drag the corners outwards like shown below.

And just like that, we made this image look like it was taken with wider lens.


Create Perfectly Positioned Objects in 1 Minute

Trying to take a perfectly straight birds eye view shot is difficult and even a millimeter off can ruin the shot. Thankfully, the Perspective Warp tool is here to save your day again.

To fix this image, simply draw some boxes around your object.

Switch to Warp mode then click on the the horizontal and vertical auto warp button.

The CD envelopes are instantly fixed and it only took a minute.

  1. yes, prespective wrap not active for me...i tried many times...please let me know what to do?

    1. Go to Edit > Preferences > Performance and enable the "Use Graphics Processor" setting.

      Without the "Use Graphics Processor" setting, Perspective Warp will be grayed out in the menu.

  2. This is the best guide I've read on perspective warp. You're the only one who showed why it's useful.

  3. The fourth example was a STUPID. Architects and designers need to know how to take an image in perspective into elevation. You failed miserably.

  4. Cool tech but only works on some photos. And expect a lot of warped areas. The road in your example picture made the straight lines curved. Photoshop needs to implement AI into this for better rendering.

    1. Hey will u make a tutorial on mocha AE for my motion tracking. I have a little. Problem solved
