In our today’s lesson we will show what changes can be made using the standard Photoshop filter called Vanishing point, as well as how to correct the perspective, and look at the results of their actions.
Let’s start with the fact that this filter does not copes with the task (which we will discuss later), and it is intended more for quick editing (and as we all know – quickly not so great!).
So, we will need 2 images: one with a table – where will impose the second – the forest.
You can immediately transfer the picture to the forest on the final image, and you can just copy it by pressing CTRL + A and CTRL + C alternately. We drag the photo to the source.
Now, selecting a new layer, go to layers panel and find the item Select Pixels after pressing the right mouse button and going to the context menu. Thus, we will select all the pixels to a new layer.
For the convenience of further processing will create a duplicate of the lower layer (in which case our source remained unchanged). Just press CTRL + J.
Then, selecting the duplicated layer, look in the menu item filter Filter-Vanishing Point.
Looks like our filter Photoshop. We need to allocate using a special tool area, where we will insert the second image.
To do this, take the top left tool and begin to select the table. If after extraction you will see a red border, you should know that you need to fix them, so as to obtain a grid of blue lines. Otherwise, the filter will not work!
Draw your attention to the fact that the filter ONLY works with flat surfaces (horizontal and vertical), so it is not advisable to elements of complex structures (such as this one with many faces).
In the filter menu you can find additional features, such as: display region, to display measurement, put the grid in Photoshop etc.
Now just press CTRL + V to paste the second image. It should be noted that it should be a bit more of the area where you want to insert.
If we drag the image inside the newly created selection, you will receive the following picture. Not a fountain, so you need to think of something else!
The resulting image is unlikely someone will be satisfied!
Let’s try to do independent work on changing perspectives. We have a separate lesson on this topic.
Create a duplicate layer if necessary, and go to the context menu of the layer with the forest and click on the Perspective.
Applied perspective in the photo, then select the deformation (from the same context menu), rotation, etc., and produce manipulation.
To achieve realism, you can take time.
Deformation of use only after installation of prospects, as it can affect the end result.
To highlight the edges of the table, select the background and then apply the inverse (CTRL + I). By this action we will remove later unnecessary elements of the forest.
To select the table, temporarily turn off the layer with the forest, and after selecting turn it back on.
You now need to do the same with the bottom part of the table. There will have to allocate manually using the lasso tool or any other. You can apply opacity to 50-40% for the top layer, to make it easier to select the edges of the table.
Should get something like this:
Highlighting a region, click on the DELETE button.
You see, the result is much better than auto filter.
The top photo did not look too unrealistic compared to the table, apply the option overlay. I chose the mode “Soft light”.
But, the end result of our actions.
You can use a lot of automatic filters, but this option (manual processing) rather than Vanishing point.
