Adaptive Wide Angle – Photoshop CS6 Beta

Skill level
Beginner

For photographers working with wide-angle or fisheye lenses, the new Adaptive Wide Angle filter in the Photoshop CS6 Beta may help you out!

One of the neat new features for photographers inside of Photoshop CS6, is the Adaptive Wide Angle Filter. As a photographer, there are many times where you are looking to capture as much of the scene as you can, but you may be tight on space, so you have to resort to an ultra wide angle, or even a fisheye lens. If you have any experience shooting with these types of lenses, you know that they can produce rounded edges to objects that should be straight.

While some photographers are looking for this type of effect, there are times where you’d like to straighten out the photo. This is where the Adaptive Wide Angle Filter comes into play. This filter allows you to trace out the edges of your photo that should be straight, and Photoshop will do the rest to correct the image!
