  1. Awesome. Thanks so much for posting this one!!! I love the fact that you showcase the various fitlers of PS. Helps me get to know them and learn to love them. Appreciate it!

  2. That was really cool! Never even looked at vanishing point before. I love using filters and now I have a new tool/toy to play with…thanks.

  3. um…is it possible to go around curved lines…like sun glass….for example putting a picture on the lens….or is it easier another way?

  5. I guess I am doing something wrong. When I copy and paste my picture and click on vanishing point, I get my grid, but my pasted picture will not move. Please help!

  11. I have same prob like Nikki Barks have, after making grid, when i insert pic into that grid, my ps cs4 get freezed, nd after 1 min it shows that close programme…….

    please help us…..

  12. hello Corey and thank you for your tutorials they are really helpful.

    i am trying today to do the same as you did but with text and i don’t seem to be getting it to work.

    can you make a tutorial if it’s possible for using vanishing point with text?

    thank you :)

  13. The problem I’m having with this is…….how do you delete the grids to start over? Even if I close the image and open it back up, the OLD grid is still there!

  14. I have never thought vanishing point would be so power till I watch this video tutorial.Thank you so much Corey.

  15. So glad you posted this. Great tut. I have a question, are there any differences in how it works in CS5? Seems mine doesn’t work quite the same with drawing new planes. I’m just learning this tool so perhaps it’s me.
