Default How can I bend this picture?

You can see the problem here...I took these three pictures to make a panorama...however, the camera was not level. When I ttok these shots about 4 months ago I just decided that I'd re-take the shots properly...for obvious reasons that's no longer possible.

So, after much work, i have the pictures aligned OK, but the panorama is massively curved. For the life of me I can't figure out how to fix this in shop, or any other tool. Can someone point me along a (hopefully) simple right path?

Here is the pic:



Thanks for the tips!

Try the "spherize" option under "filter", "distort" in photoshop.

I've never tried this before, so this is a suggestion from left field. I spent ten minutes to get this image...



I selected the left half of the image with the Marquee Tool, hit Ctrl-T for transform and chose Skew. Pulled the top and bottom left sides down to make the horizon level.

Hit Ctrl-Shft-I to invert the selection (which selects the right half of the image), and did the same thing.

This left me with the center of the image going up slightly in a V. Chose Image, Liquify and used a large brush in the center, half in and half out of the water, and gently pulled it down. You can then use smaller brushes to pull other things in line.

I hope someone who really knows how to do this responds to you. I'll be interested in learning a better way.

The best software that I know for this is a photoshop plugin called panorama tools.

http://www.fh-furtwangen.de/~dersch/

It is free, but somewhat complex...

I use it for barrel distortion correction, bending, warping, and yes... panoramas too.

If you have the energy and fortitude, give it a try.

Good Luck!
