    Some of us have discovered pictorial advantages yielded by the (semi-) stereoscopic Projection of the Samyang 8mm ‘fisheye.’

    In trying to use the “Adaptive Wide Angle” filter of PS CS6 with pics from this lens, two issues arise immediately:*

    a) In all the demos when drawing the ‘guidelines’ they follow the curve in the image almost exactly. With this lens they stubbornly do not. And trying to force them to do so is a real pain in the derriere. (That Adobe seems to have made even more difficult with their forced circles and angles.)

    b) Having gone through this painful struggle, how does one ‘record’ (save?) the results so that they can be used on other images taken with the same lens?
    *being a classical lens, no EXIF frosting is saved with/in the raw file.

    I’d like to see a tutorial that addresses the other tools on the filter, left unmentioned here, such as the polygon tool; or the various filter options in the dropdown. Or what to do when PS fails to automatically fit itself to a line one tries to draw.
