I have an image that I took at an angle, so it isn't a perfect rectangle:

enter image description here

How would I pull the bottom left and bottom right corners in so that they line up perfectly with the top two corners?

Like this:

I have both Photoshop and Sketch.

  • One is left: How do I make the background look out cotton fabric and all colored and black shapes look out like they were embroidered?

  • The best way to fix this is to retake the photo at a perpendicular angle (90°) to the surface being photographed. The answers given suggesting the correction of the perspective in Photoshop will certainly work, but they will degrade the image quality slightly.

In Photoshop there's a filter to fix those lens distortions:

  • Menu Filter → Lens Correction

Choose the top Custom tab and modify the Vertical Perspective and Scale

As Sergey mentioned, perspective crop is your tool-of-choice here:

Hopefully you get the idea...


You can use a Perspective Crop tool in Photoshop: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/crop-straighten-photos.html#transform_perspective_while_cropping


If you do not have Photoshop, the app Office Lens will do this.

You can either use it to take the photo directly, or load in a photo from your camera roll (the latter is the method you want).

  1. Open the app and tap the gallery icon

  2. Select your photo. It will try to auto-fit. This can be very accurate. For my image, it was not. Tap the Edit Points button:

  3. Drag the points to where you want them, and then tap done:

  4. The finished image:

The app is also available for iPad (and Android) which provides a somewhat easier editing experience.
