I want to copy the adjustments from the Keystone tool from one image to another. However, the adjustments are not copied correctly. What could be done about that?
The adjustments in the Keystone tool can be done either manually using the sliders or by applying auto-correction. When the second option is used, copying the settings of the Keystone tool would not be exactly the same when applied to other images.
- Use the Horizontal and Vertical sliders in the Keystone tool for making the necessary adjustments.
- Drag the Amount slider left or right to fine-tune the effect.
- Use the Aspect slider if necessary.
- There are three Keystone auto-correction tools denoted by the following icons from left to right: Keystone Vertical, Keystone Horizontal, and Keystone. The active icon will turn orange. One of those correction tools can be selected using the keyboard shortcut K.
- Set the four points to mark up the vertical or horizontal lines that need to be aligned. Press the Apply button (located in the center of the image in the Viewer).
- Adjust the Amount and Aspect sliders as desired.
Copying the Keystone adjustments to other images
In this article, the local copy and apply option will be covered. Meanwhile, it is also possible to refer to global copy and apply where the adjustments from the Keystone tool will be copied together with the settings from other tools.
- Select the image to copy adjustments from (it should always keep the white thick border).
- Hold Cmd/Ctrl and select the variants to apply the adjustments to.
- Make sure that the Edit All Selected icon is orange.
- Go to the Keystone tool in the Lens tool tab.
- Click on the double-ended arrow icon in the top bar of the tool. Checkmark the necessary settings to be copied. Press Apply.
NOTE: In case you copy the keystone adjustments made with the auto-correction tools, the result in the destination image will be different because of the auto-correction algorithm that considers the individual parameters of each image. Thus, the applied result could slightly differ from that in the sample image.
