hi all,

 

i have several images of objects such as the attached image of a blanket. as you can see, the edges of the blanket are uneven.

 

what i would like to do, is to basically pull the edges of the blanket, so that i end up with the object being a perfect rectangle. 

 

is there a way to do this with affinity photo or even affinity designer? i didn't find anything about it in the tutorials or in this forum.

 

appreciate your help!

 

frank

You could try to make the edges straight with Mesh Warp tool in Photo, you will have to add many, many control vertices. For the crease in the middle Inpaint Brush tool might work; then fix the distortions with Patch tool or Clone brush. Not sure of the quality of the output though :\ Maybe others could help you more, good luck !

Is this the sort of result you would be happy with?

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Or maybe this for a more subtle border effect

I don't think there's any way to straighten out the entire blanket without a great deal of painstaking work, either with the Mesh Warp Tool or the tools in the Liquify Persona.

i was actually hoping to get the entire blanket as a picture without cutting something off...  :)

 

I'm not sure I understand. 

 

If you mean the label, you can just copy that and move it back after you straighten the blanket.

While it might be done w. lots of work, given the amount of ripple in the perimeter, I suspect the mesh of the weave would end up rather distorted.
