Most of you probably have some photos of tall buildings in your collection where the sides appear to slant inward at the top, due to the perspective from which the photo was taken. We can correct this with the perspective tool in the GIMP.

Right click on the image above and save it to your computer if you'd like to follow along. Then open the image in The GIMP and continue to the next page. I am using GIMP 2.4.3 for this tutorial. You may need to adapt these instructions for another version.
