Correcting camera perspective distortion
I took this picture at Mission Carmel by the Sea. Corrected the sky in PhotoPaint but fixed the perspective in Xara. As the mission has some parts which naturally have sagged in the structure, I trued the interesting window over the door in a clipview and well as the righthand bell tower. When making an enlargement for the wall, the distortion really shows up badly. Used Xara Picture editor to decrease contrast and bring out more detail in the foliage. The ground level of the mission slopes from the point of the camera shot as well.
Never thought to use Xara for this before, it is a great tool.
FYI, camera used was the Canon Rebel XT 8.2 megapixel.
