Photography – no matter what anyone says, it is a real art that needs not only to learn but also to feel it. Therefore, non-professionals (and, to be fair, they too) quite often take pictures that are not quite the way they were originally planned. Either they do not set the focus, then they remove it against the sun, then, in general, the horizon is overwhelmed. But if a defocused image or one shot in backlight is almost impossible to correct, then in principle it is possible to correct the angle of the subject or the entire frame. I tell you how.
You can edit the angle in the photo using the photo editor, which is installed by almost all Android users. Of course, I’m talking about Google Photos. Despite the fact that some have already begun to move to other sites, since Google announced that it will abandon unlimited storage, the editing tools from the application have not gone anywhere. They are still quite functional and convenient, replacing the vast majority of alternative solutions for ordinary users.
How to Crop Photos on Android
- Find the picture you need in Google Photos and open it.
- In the snapshot interface, click on the edit button (between the “Share” and “Delete” buttons.
- Select the perspective editing tool and click Crop.
- Set the cropping frames in the direction of the view for alignment and save the photo.
To be honest, I don’t have many bad photos that should be corrected. Therefore, ignore the artistic value of the above images taken from the airplane window. They are given here solely as an example. However, I think that they are doing quite well with their task. Please note that the horizon of the original image is definitely obstructed. Cropping allows it to be straightened without much damage to the image.
Changing Perspective in a Photo
The framing mechanism can come in handy for enhancing a wide variety of photos. After all, it allows you not only to straighten the horizon but also literally change the angle of shooting. It is clear that you will not be able to rotate the photo 180 degrees. However, cropping is not needed for this either. With it, you can simply correct the flaws that crept into the photo at the time of the shooting, which happens quite often when using a smartphone camera. Check it out for yourself, and you will see how many photos you can not send to the basket.
I understand perfectly well that the possibilities of the framing mechanism from Google Photos are not limitless and that for something more serious you may need more advanced software like Photoshop. However, it should be borne in mind that, firstly, Photoshop – the same one, and not parodies of it – exists only on desktop platforms or on the iPad, and, secondly, the use of this kind of software needs to be trained separately. Otherwise, there is a great risk of screwing up and turning an already not very successful shot into complete trash.
