Vanishing Point is a Photoshop filter allowing subjects and alterations in your picture to be scaled and placed correspondent to the picture’s perspective. With the help of this tool, you can correct the images’ perspective to make an outcome closer to reality as one that greatly reflects the scene’s perspective.
This is a must-have editing tool for real estate photography. Using filters can help insert furniture or décor in interior photography, or add the details to the exterior image. All you need is to download Photoshop free and repeat the following steps.
