Photoshop :: How To Straighten Curved Objects In PShop While Preserving The Dimesnional Ratios?
Dec 20, 2006
As you can see, the sword is curved. I want to make it look straight without messing up its dimensions, i.e. I want to straighten it in PhotoShop as like it was made of clay. I hope you get what I mean.
I have the image of the sword on a separate layer, the background is a different layer.
I am a photographer and I am trying to straighten a postcard photo of the Washington Memorial. I want to straighten the memorial without harming the rest of my photo (it is a apature priority photo and I have flowers near my camera and the memorial in the background). So I want to somehow lasso the memorial in the background and straighten it- what is the best way to do this?
I've got a template file, which has my photo stored as Smart Object. There are some filters performed on it, and some groups of filters I select to match the image. It works great. However, the only caveat is that the EXIF data is stored from original image. Photoshop doesn't read the EXIF from the most recently imported file.
if I use the Straighten tool (first the ruler to mark out a horizon line, then click the Straighten Layer button), Photoshop used to straighten the picture, and then automatically crop it so that none of the extra canvas shows.
When I do that now, it just straightens it, and leaves me to manually crop the picture.
I have just reinstalled Adobe Photoshop CS2. It appears to install okay. When you start it up it appears to start okay, the splash screen appears and goes through the start up, that disappears and the normal working page appears, but as soon as I click on any menu,tool etc. it goes blank with the top left corner of the working page showing Adobe Photoshop (not responding). I also tried a "repair" from the unistaller, but no joy.
I am working on a Dell Dimension 9150 I am running XP pro sp3. AV is AVG and firewall is Comodo. I have never been able to get PShop working on this computer, so I don't think it is a PShop problem. I have stacks of disk space, and 2Gb RAM.
I'm using the text tool and want to change the color of one word but when I select that word and click on the Color Picker box then select the color I want, the entire text changes to that color. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I've got several paragraphs and want all the text except the one word to be black. This page is Layer 2 and has the 'T' next to it in the Layers palette.
I have a variable number of text lines I would like to arrange along the path of half a circle. I would like the text to look like each text-string is radiating from the circle (the path I have as half a circle).
I would like to do this in adobe illustrator
I would like the text to be evenly spaced along the path dependent on how many lines of text I have.
I have seen other discussions suggesting either the blend-tool or the brush-tool. But no luck. The blend-tool would make distorted shapes in between, and would twist and distort the text. The brush tool would make each text a little bit 'cone-shaped', and I would prefer having the text without such a 'cone-shape'.
I am attaching a picture that halfway shows my intentions. In this diagram I have started rotating the first 4-5 text-lines. I have more text-strings (just above the half-circle) that I also would like to include along the path the half-circle is indicating.
The final goal is to get each of these locality-names raditing from the tips in the little red tree.
Is it possible in illustrator to align the text along a path like this? It is almost similar to the normal align objects and distribute objects.
I am working on a Mac OSX 10.5 Adobe Illustrator CS3.
How to get that blue & white fill to follow that "S". I've tried to go by the article but am lost. I've used Corel Draw since version 8 but have not gotten in as deep as I need to get. That "S" fill by Sally is awesome!.

Looking to switch to the LCD / TFT type monitors - am on CRTs at the moment...
1/ I see that in many cases (models), even though the brightness remain constant - 300 cd/m2 - the contrast ratios vary from 800:1 to 3000:1
I would think the higher contrast ratio would be better but often more expensive monitors offer the 800:1 and cheaper ones offer the 3000:1. This from the same manufacturer. Am i missing something?
2/ Today, is there a difference between TFT and LCD when it comes to monitors or do they mean the same thing or rather are talking about the same thing?
3/ Another wild difference... some expensive ones are talking of a 16ms refresh while the cheaper ones are at 5ms
4/ Ideally, i'm looking for a 1600 x 1200 but - obviously these are not the widescreens. See some available at 20/21 inch category and they are the traditional 3:4 screen ratio (like CRTs). So would it be better to go for a 24" at 1920 x 1200... in about the same price range?
I have a 5" x 7" (landscape style) image that I want to crop in Elements 9. I'm using the Guided mode on the Edit tab of the program. When I use the pulldown menu and I see the 5 x 7 crop box size that I want to use, I click it. But the crop window that appears, is 7 x 5 (portrait mode) rather than 5 x 7 landscape mode. I can work around this by changing my crop box size selection on the pulldown menu to No Restriction, but I'm then just guessing that I'll get precisely the 5 x 7 ratio that I want. How can I change the crop box from portrait style to landscape style so that I can crop my image 5 x 7 rather than 7 x 5?
I am doing design exhibitions with interior design. The interior designer sends me an AutoCAD file. The AutoCAD can calculate ratios from the actual sizes, how about the Illustrator? Can it calculate in the same way? For example, draw the line 2 meters from ratio 1:30. Now, we have to compare and calculate length in manual way which is inconvenience for us.
How to create a flow arrow label for a feature line that parallels the curve?
I've a vague notion that this could be done with a dynamic block and a few fancy expressions. I'm comfortable with expressions, but I've never used dynamic blocks at all, so I wouldn't know where to start.
To be clear, I know curved text is possible, but I'm looking for a curved line (ie an arc) that would look 'parallel' to the arc of the feature line (ie have the same centre point). This would have to be dynamic to allow for different radii and for flipping to the left and right side of the feature line.
Having a time getting ribs to align 2m below top of ridge beam, and connect to curved wall below. I created one, then arrayed, but the radius changes at each 2.5 degree interval. I don't think I should have to calculate the % radius change to get the beams to do this. Some constraint button maybe?
Not sure if editing a wall profile is the best way to model this, but it's working.
I want to extrude a big number of pillars to a rather complicated surface and that works out fine. But each end of the pillars warps around the surface and I want them just to go up to it and stop with a resulting horizontal face.
difference between DVD 4:3 and DVD 16:9. How should I be saving my file if it is to be shown on 18" tv screens ? Or does how I save it depend on something to do with the photographs I have in the slideshow? Will saving it as 4:3 reduce the overall file size ? Or is there another way to reduce the file size so I can fit more onto a DVD? At the moment I can only fit just over an hour onto a 4.7gb DVD. video editing dummy that I am.
How can i export a series of images in different aspect ratios to the same height?
I wish to make a slider callery for my website. all the images need to be 750 Pixels high, the width does not matter. I have a mixture of square pandscap and protraite images can i do thing as one export or do i have to do it twice? Once for long edge and once for shot edge?
In Lightroom 5.3 suddenly, when I enter custom aspect ratios in the cropping function the results are not right. The values I enter should make it shorter, but the results are making it narrower. This has been working correctly until just the last hour or so. Have I inadvertenly changed a setting of some kind?
I haven't been able to figure out how to use the Straighten tool without cropping.
I am starting with a full page image with Pixel Dimensions of 9750 x 13050 pixels, and a Document Size of 8.125 x 10.875 inches. I want to use the Straighten tool, and then use the Patch tool to fix the resulting irregularities around the edges.
But no matter what I try, I end up with smaller Pixel Dimensions and a smaller Document Size; for example: 9725 x 13016 pixels and 8.104 x 10.847 inches. This occurs regardless of whether I have the Delete Cropped Pixels boxed checked.
I also tried starting with a Canvas Size of 8.125 x 10.875 inches, and using Place…to bring in the image. But the Straighten process still results in a similar reduction in the Pixel Dimensions and Document Size.
I am accessing the Straighten tool via the Crop tool. Is there any other method to Straighten?
The screenshots below show the original Image Size (top) and the Image Size after Straighten (bottom).
on my laptop i run xp adn photoshop cs3 normal (not extended)what i miss is a good straighten and crop like cs5in cs3 i use the ruler tool ->rotate canvas -> arbitrary and i my photo is straight but with big borders around the photo now cs5 does a great job but photoshop cs3 no there is the scipt straighten and crop photos but in this case doesn't do a great job
because delete the borders and my photo returns to be awryok i can crop manually , but it's exhausting if i have to work on some photos , one by oneis there a script/action/tips or plugin that can do the same great cs5 job?
I am running Photoshop CS. I have many hundred documents to scan and was going to use the pre loaded "Crop and Straighten" tool under file/automate. My problem is I want to run this over a folder that will save and close, not just one image at a time.
I also want it to do an automatic save using the current file name without adding the word "copy" to it, and not have to type over the file name each time when the save option comes up with "Filename copy.tiff".
I know the Crop and straighten tool is great for putting several images on a scanner and it separating them into individual images, but this is not what I am doing, I have one scan, one document.
So is it possible to run this over a folder of 500+ documents and walk away from it, have all images save and close using the current name, and not fill the desktop up with many opened images that need to be manually closed?
I have followed the instructions provided but when I click on Stragten Photo, it turns the photo almost diagonally. I never get the line that appears in the How To blurb. I find that i go back to my old software to do this task as it is much easier.
My boyfriend purchased Photoshop Elements 11 for me recently and I am just now learning how to use it. I did some Wedding photos for a friend yesterday and I've edited them but some of them are slightly crooked. I went looking for a straightening tool but was unable to find it. I finally found in the menu where it says 'Rotate' and looked in that selection and at the bottom it says Straighten and Crop and underneath that is another that says "Straighten".
I went on Youtube and whatever I find there is so majorly different from my program that I cannot even use their tutorials. How to use Photoshop elements 11 to straighten my photos? I need to do this right away so the couple can have their photos.
I have a couple of photos of the sun (700 to be exact) that I'm trying to crop. Doing it manually on each one would be very tedious and so I found the automatic script of Crop & Straighten.
However, even though it does a good crop when I batch process all my snaps using an action with the crop & straighten within it, the photos are also straightened or rotated in this case. Is there any way to avoid the straightening part to work on the images and just use the tool to crop the images automatically ?
When I click on the straighten tool and then click on a horizontal line on my photo, as I attempt to draw the line across the photo it freezes after a fraction of an inch and rotates the photo before I've drawn the line along the horizontal feature I'm using and it's always wrong. I had this problem with my downloaded trial version of Elements 11 and it appears on the version I purchased in the store today.
I am upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7. When I upgraded from CS5 to CS6 on my present computer, I said yes to preserving the old presets. But how will this work on a new computer? And, in fact, all of my versions of Photoshop going back I can't recall how far have been upgrades. How is this handled with a new computer? I have the CS3, CS5 and CS6 installation disks. I am not sure about the older versions. So, two questions here: 1. How is the CS6 installation handled if all I've had for the past who-knows-how-long is upgrades. I started with one of the very first Photoshops. And 2.
I have used a template in Photoshop CS2 to create a DVD/CD Cover and I have an issue saving the image for upload at the correct dimensions.
This is what I have - CD cover @ 4.75 x 4.75 inch with 300dpi. This gives me an image with a resolution of around 3000 x 3000 pixels.(approx)
There is no problem printing from PS as the dimensions in Inches is the default print size. The problem comes when I export the image as a JPEG ready for upload and sharing. It seems the pixel resolution becomes the default size settings. This will give the end users problems in printing at the correct size for their CD cases.
I, can get round this as my printer allows me to 'print at the original size' which defaults back to the size set in Inches but I don't think everyone has this option.
Is there any way to ensure that the end user will d/l or save the uploaded image at the correct size so that they will not have to do anything other than print it?
The last thing a want to do is make it a difficult thing for them to obtain.
FYI - I would like to keep the dpi resolution if possible as there is a lot going on and this might be lost if the quality is reduced.
