Professional Photographer Demas Rusli has produced an useful tutorial that’ll benefit novices and pros alike. In just a few minutes, he reveals you how to straighten even exceptionally mis-aligned photos completely utilizing both Lightroom and Photoshop.

The video was influenced by Rusli’s background as a designer. He’s been working as a designer for 5 years, and studied architecture for 5 years before that, so after ten years, vertical and horizontal balance is extremely important to him. Let’s just say he’s no fan of the Dutch angle in his photography.

In this tutorial, Rusli covers two different techniques.

The first, easier approach, is to use Lightroom’s Upright tool to draw 2 horizontal and 2 vertical lines that suggest what the straightened scene must appear like. Lightroom does the rest of the work for you.

In the second method, Rusli dives into Photoshop where he drags in some guidelines from the rulers at the leading and bottom (press CTRL/CMD + R if you do not currently see them). He then utilizes the Free Transform tool to adjust Point of view, Distort, and Alter until his image is dialed in precisely how he desires it. He uses Material Aware Fill to fill in any empty areas produced by the severe correction (where possible).

This is Rusli’s favored approach, because it provides him a lot more control over the outcomes, however it does take longer than Lightroom’s automated option, and may be a headache for beginners.

Now, obviously, the picture he utilizes is an extreme example– but that’s the point. If even this low-angle shot taken with an ultra-wide-angle lens can be aligned to appear like it was captured straight on, then you can take on practically any photograph and make it look right.

Have a look at the full video above to see both methods in action, and then dive into Photoshop and Lightroom if you wish to give it a shot on your own.
