Fixing bad crop in photoshop

Fixing bad crop in photoshop

Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to fix a badly framed image in Photoshop. I was going through my library the other day looking for a specific image, and I found a shot, that while not perfect, would do for what I wanted. The only problem was that the image was badly framed. Now, I know the ideal solution is to shoot it right in camera, but this was an old image, and frankly, occasionally people make mistakes. I knew it was an easy fix though, so I popped over to photoshop and in about 3 minutes I had sorted the cropping issue. In this video I show you what I did. It’s basically using the crop tool to expand the image (I love that you can use Photoshop’s crop tool to expand an image as well as crop it) and then filled in the missing sky using content aware fill. I finished off by fixing a slight edge in the join between the original image and the generated sky and then added a vignette to finish it off. You can see the final image below.
