Sometimes our lens distorts the perspective in the image.
You can easily correct perspective distortions of an image using the Adobe 
Photoshop Crop tool.
All you have to do is: 
1.    Choose a Crop Tool in CS2 tools panel.

2.    Create a marquee by dragging the tool cursor over the image.

3.    In the Options bar check Perspective box (if it is unchecked).

4.    By dragging the corners of the marquee (they can be moved independently
in this mode) line the marquee borders with the actually vertical and horizontal
lines of the image.


5.    Adjust the marquee to the desired size.


6.    Press Enter key or Commit button in the Options bar.
The resulted image will be rectangular and have no distortions.
