The New CS6 Feature I’ll Never Use
Adaptive Wide Angle Filter
This tool is basically meant to correct lens distortion issues on photos shot with a wide angle lens. In this episode I’ll show you how its meant to be used with horizontal and vertical reference lines. I spent about an hour today trying to figure out how to apply this tool in a way that would help my image, and in the end it didn’t do much at all. It did, however, work with a fisheye photo but usually the reason people shoot with those is for the bowed effect.
