#### Step 1

Everybody knows the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, although intended to stand vertically, the tower began leaning to the southeast due to a poorly laid foundation. But now we have Photoshop to fix that leaning using only the Clone Stamp Tool.

First, find your favorite image of the tower, I've found this one. Open it and save it as a new PSD file somewhere. I pasted the image into a new document 1000 pixels by 1500 pixels, but you can work with the original file size.

#### Step 2

I'll increase the highlights levels of the tower. You can adjust your image according to your needs, or just skip this step if you're using another picture.

#### Step 3

Once you have your image ready, create a new blank layer above the "Tower" layer and name it "Straight tower."

#### Step 4

Now select your Clone Source. Select the "Tower" layer and Option-click anywhere at top the left of the tower. Ensure that the Clone Source window is open, just go to Windows > Clone Source to show it.

#### Step 5

Draw a vertical guide to see how your going to modify the tower. In the Clone Source window mark the Show Overlay check box to see the clone source translucent preview. Now here's the trick, just change the Offset angle to around 4,0º. You'll see how the preview is straight now. Do not click anywhere and go to next step.

#### Step 6

Select the "Straight Tower" layer and just paint over, start from the top of the tower to the bottom, you'll see how the original tower disappears. Stop painting when you get close to the buildings.

#### Step 7

Continue cloning but be a little bit more carefully around the tower's base. Reduce the size of the Cloning Brush to clone the borders, nevermind if you clone a little bit of sky over the background buildings, we'll fix it later.

#### Step 8

In this picture, there's a couple with a baby, clone them too, you'll just move there position a little bit. Again, don't worry about the details yet.

#### Step 9

Now let's fix all the details. First, we'll improve the sky next to the tower, for this select the "Tower layer", change the Clone Brush size to 7px, set the Offset angle to 0, and select the Clone source somewhere over the sky. Next, select the "Straight tower" layer and paint the sky. Do the same for the buildings, the fence around the tower, or everywhere you'll find any imperfection. Remember, set the Clone source on the "Tower" layer and paint on the "Straight Tower" layer.

#### Step 10

You can see the difference in the image below. Then you can Flatten the image and save it as another .jpg file.

#### Part Two Conclusion

Simple right? You can try this technique on another building. How about leaning the Eiffel Tower instead? It's up to you now!

### Tutorial Conclusion

The Clone Stamp Tool is one of the most useful features of Photoshop, as much for photo editors as for graphic designers. There's no limits for the applications of this wonderful tool!
