Perspective and Barrel Distortion Correction
of Wide-Angle Photographs

Distorted and corrected images

When one shoots with wide-angle lenses, perspective is emphasized. View cameras give you the tools to correct on the location, but it can also be accomplished after the fact in image processing programs. These tutorials will walk you through the steps to transform the left image into the one on the right. It covers both Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7 and Adobe Photoshop 6.

There is a whole new tutorial on PSP8.0, covering its more extensive set of correction tools. These tools have carried over into version 9.0 as well.
