I took a 35mm photo of a framed, wall mounted subject. After developing, I realized that there is some parallax in my copy of that subject. Because the photo was shot from slightly below the subject (to avoid flash reflection), the reproduction is not truly square. The repro gradually gets smaller as you go from bottom to top. Is there a program that can be used to correct this type of fault?
Thanks, Glenn Not sure if this should be in "User Support"

Photoshop can do this quite easily. Send me the pic
if you want me to do it, should take a couple seconds.
Or if you have it, use the edit>transform> then use
perspective to clean it up. Grab one of the corners that is off and fix it.

PZ, thanks for your offer. I do believe my wife has photoshop. Will scan and make the attempt first. :)

Once you open up edit>transform>perspective, you will see
what exactly it does. It's real easy.

Hrmmm, strangely enough, I ran into this issue, but I can't seem to figure out the requirements to make the perspective option available in the transform menu. I have a .jpg I took with a digital camera off a wall, but I did not have the room to stand directly in front of it, so it is from the side. I'm not good with PS, but I'm gonna be determined on this one...

Select the entire image and make a copy of it. If you just
have the image as the background layer, some of the transform
options are not available. If you have it on a new layer,
it will work, then just hide the original "background" image.
