    You can use the Crop tool (hotkey C) for the initial crop, and then adjust the controls in the Transform tab in Develop or RAW Develop filter to straighten the perspective.

    Hi Denis, thanks for the reply. I followed your instructions, but it is impossible to fix the perspective that way to the degree I need.
    Is there any video that demonstrates how to do this? I might be doing it wrong...

    Specifically, what I am looking for is well described in this short video

    Thanks!

    I just made a short demo using the sample image that comes with Luminar: https://we.tl/68YoB1iIqH

    Basically, you first adjust the perspective with the Vertical and Horizontal sliders to set the correct perspective for the object of your choice on the photo, and then crop out the part of the image with that object. I might've misunderstood your request, is this something you're looking for?

    Denis,
    Two comments:
    1. I watched the video and this was indeed what I was trying to do. It can be done, but it is rather cumbersome compared to the competitors functionality. Hopefully you can improve upon that in a future version.
    2. I really do like these short videos that explain one certain action. I would urge you to publish more of them, so that new users can familiarize themselves with functions without having to resort to a forum.
    Keep up the good work!

    @Frank - I'll be sure to pass this along to our education team. We have been working on shorter, more directed tutorials. Keep an eye out in our Video Gallery here: https://skylum.com/video-galleries/luminar-video-tutorials

    Hi, the best tools I've seen for this correction are in DXO sw (DXO View and DXO PhotoLab) and I would HIGHLY appreciate similar ones in Skylum. They are fast and have several options to use. I have also made photos to paintings with and without frame and got very good results. I also propose these for new features.
