how to fix perspective in iphone photos katya jackson

Not a long time ago I found a trick how to make a photo of a building much better. You know when you see a beautiful object and want to snapshot it in the way you see it, but then when you check your phone you realize that perspective is wrong? Instead of a perfect rectangle or square windows, you get something reminding a trapeze? Very beautiful, right?

One type of my photos on Instagram are facades I see in the city. I love London architecture and it’s literally a heaven for such facade and display windows freaks like me. As much as I wanted to be perfect in this style of photos, I was struggling for a looong time to take a good shot.

The only possible workaround I could think of was to get a bit higher to take a photo or to lift my iPhone a meter up. Carrying a chair everywhere obviously wasn’t an option šŸ™‚ I also wasn’t interested in Photoshop editing, becauseĀ it’s just too much hustle and I wanted a simple solution.

And then I found it! An application that can perfectly fix perspective, horizon and even lens distortion. It’s called SKRWT and it does magic, believe me. It costs only $1.99 and it’s the best purchase I ever made on App Store.

Let’s see how it works.

I like taking photos of coffee shops, especially it’s exterior. And every time I do it, all the vertical lines are a mess. These are before and after photos:

Even though the first photo is ok, I prefer to have vertical lines parallel. In this case I only had to adjust one thing and press Save.

When I was taking this photo there were other girls doing the same thing, so I wasn’t able to take a good position in order not to screw the lines of the building. Luckily, SKRWT could fix this too.Ok-But-First-Coffee-How-To-Edit-a-Photo-For-Instagram-Chelsea-47
