Here's how to adjust perspective in Google Photos

Pictures play a significant part in someone’s life. They connect them to their past through the recollection of some of their great memories.

Google Photos is a terrific photo and video storage solution. It is home to thousands of pictures and helps store, organize and manage the photos, along with several editing tools.

There are times when you click a picture and don’t get the desired perspective that you are looking for. Sometimes the top of the image appears smaller as it is away from the phone, and the bottom seems bigger as it is nearer to you.

To tackle this situation, Google Photos has a built-in tool to adjust the angle of your pictures and make them symmetrical.

Although, you must be familiar with cropping, adjusting brightness, and rotating tools. But the perspective tool acts as a skew which slightly rotates the images three-dimensionally to bring them into an accurate symmetry.

So, this article will walk you through the steps to adjust perspectives of photos on your Android and iOS devices.

Note: For the perspective tool, you need to have an updated version of Google Photos and this method will work on Android as well as iOS devices.
