Photo Tilt Correction Use Cases

Tilt correction, also known as perspective correction, is a technique used in photography and image editing to correct distortions that occur when a camera is not perfectly level with the subject.

It involves adjusting the perspective of an image to make lines that should be parallel, such as the sides of buildings or the horizon, appear parallel in the final image.

It’s vastly used in architectural, real estate, landscape, and panoramic photography to correct skewed photos.

Perfect Alignment With an Image Straightener

Luminar Neo has a lot of AI-based tools that help you effortlessly achieve the needed results. The CropAI tool automatically adjusts the photo’s composition, crop, and perspective. If needed, you can manually fine-tune any aspect of the resulting composition.


The Importance Of The Right Horizon In Photography

The horizon in photography plays a crucial role in determining the overall visual impact and quality of an image. It balances the composition, creates a sense of stability, acts as a leading line, drawing the viewer's eye into the scene.

A straight and level horizon can guide the viewer's gaze, making the image more engaging.
