We find it under Edit, Free Transform,…and we're in this shortcut here, Ctrl + T,…that comes in very handy.…With Free Transform, we get these manipulators here…and by dragging these manipulator points,…we can stretch out or scale…the content of our layer.…By clicking in an area around the corners here,…when our cursor turns into these little curved arrows,…we can even rotate the content of our layer,…and there's another function of the Free Transform.…
It's called the Warp Mode.…You can activate it with this icon,…and what we get is a grid and these little handles here.…And as you can see, we can warp the content of our layer.…
