How To: Photoshop Perspective Warp Tool Demonstrated Using Optimus Prime

The introduction of the new Perspective Warp tool (among other things) for Photoshop CC was met with a good deal of excitement by photographers. But if you haven’t had a chance to play with it yourself, or you’re still unsure exactly how it works from the intro video, the demo above should give you a much better idea of how to put the tool to use.

The short how-to was put together by Adobe technical evangelist Andrew Trice. In it, he uses the Adobe offices in San Francisco to show you how Perspective Warp can change the perceived vantage point that an image was taken from, and then he puts the Optimus Prime truck to work showing you how to use the tool to more easily composite two images with different vanishing points.


In essence, it’s a basic tutorial that will help familiarize you with how exactly Perspective Warp works, but Trice does go a bit further by including a couple of tips and tricks, like how to lock lines in horizontal or vertical orientation to make adjustments that much easier.

Check out the video up top to see it all for yourself, and if you want a more detailed breakdown or before and after examples, head over to Trice’s website by clicking here.
