- Straightening an image WITHOUT cropping?
Here’s an example:
If I wanted to straighten the level of the road but still be able to see the wheels of the bike I need to do it without cropping. I don’t care if it looks odd, or has extra background to enable this. If it looks like a pic stuck to a bit of card that’ll be perfect.
How can I do it?
Can I do it with Apple Aperture?

Its possible Photoshops content aware fill might fill in the gaps after cropping
Never has much joy with it myself
Or use the warp selection to contract the sky and expand the road
Both are photoshop not Aperture
I don’t have Photoshop here
Have you ever had a free trial on that machine?Posted 5 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
(unless it really is merely an example, …)
is it you on the bike ?
(I only ask because the “trees” in background look fairly vertical and so the road may be like that anyway ?)
I’m not a photoshopper but I’d have thought you could clone that road surface reasonably easilyPosted 5 years ago
There is enough there to play with on the Tarmac and the sky is flat so easy to comp in, content aware fill is useless, I do a lot of retouching and have never used it. I wouldn’t use the warp tool either as it tends to smear details if overdone and you would have to stretch the background a fair bit, better off with the clone stamp and a bit of masking/blending.Posted 5 years ago
OK. Maybe I wasnt that clear. I wanted the horizon level and the whole of the bike and the floor on show. If you just rotate, it auto crops and you loose the bottom of the wheels.Posted 5 years ago
Like I said, something like sticking the pic at a silly angle on a bit of card. I’ve cropped the screenshot, not the pic…. 🙂
No, I wanted the pic to stay as it was, but with the road level. The pic has been tilted to make a mediocre lean angle look more dramatic, see, and I wanted to get it back to roughly how it was taken. As I said in my OP “I don’t care if it looks odd, or has extra background to enable this. If it looks like a pic stuck to a bit of card that’ll be perfect.”Posted 5 years agoandylMember
had a quick go with a skew. Didn’t work right.
This took me about 2 minutes to see how it would look:
I cut out the bike and then skewed the left side of the background up to level and the right side down. Then used the clone tool to fill in the gaps before putting the bike back.
It was a rush job using photoshop elements so it’s obviously not right with some gaps needing filling and the shadow bends but with a bit of time and careful area selections and maybe increasing the height of the road a touch you could probably make it passable.Posted 5 years ago
