Lightroom’s guided upright transform tool

Downtown Tucson

Downtown Tucson

The guided upright transform tool is especially useful architectural photography and specifically for correcting perspective issues introduced by the relative angle of your camera’s sensor in relation to the building.   This tool works very well for correcting wide angle lens distortions; however, it is important to note that guideline placement is important.  For this tutorial, I’m using a city view created with a wide-angle lens (24 mm on a full frame camera), I was about one story above ground level, and I slightly angled my camera up to ensure that I’d have plenty of blue sky about the tallest building.

 

 

Happy editing and let me know if you have any questions.
