There are dozens of image editing tools that we routinely use such as cropping, resizing, removal of redeye, applying filters and many more. Changing the Perspective of an Image is not a very common tool that is used although it is very crucial in the field of photography.
Perspective of a photo describes the angle at which it was taken. This can significantly affect how things appear in the photo. Take a careful look at the image below. The shape of the Television looks like a trapezoid when viewed from the side (left). By adjusting the Perspective, it can be easily transformed into a full and flat rectangle (right).
Apart from changing the angle from which the object appears to be viewed, you can also correct distortions or make the object merge smoothly with a new background, by intelligent application of Perspective changes to an image.

This is yet another online image editor that you can utilize to apply perspective effects to your photos but works differently as compared to the other tools listed above. You must specify the Margin, Border size, Frame size and the Background / Border colors of the image before uploading it. Most importantly, this tool alters the Perspective of the image, by specifying the Horizontal and Vertical rotation angles.
After you configure all the above, click on ‘Choose file’, upload the image from your local computer and then click on ‘Generate’. The image will be uploaded with the Perspective settings that you have configured above in addition to the settings related to Border, Frame and the Colors. Click on ‘Download Image’ to save it to your local drive as a PNG file.
Overall this is a fine tool and generates an image with the Perspective that you specify in the form of angles as well as a handy border and frame if required. The only disadvantage is that you cannot change the image Perspective by dragging the corners as the case with earlier tools, hence real time changes are not possible.
