Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Smart Objects with Puppet Warp, part of Photoshop: Smart Objects.
- [Narrator] It's worth turning a layer…into a Smart Object when you're applying…special kinds of filters,…even if you're only dealing with one layer.…The puppet warp distortion works really well…on organic objects, such as this goose.…Here's how it works.…We'll start, as always,…by turning this layer into a Smart Object.…When we now go to Edit, and Puppet Warp,…we see the familiar grid overlaid over it,…where it's been split up into its constituent triangles.…
We'll place a couple of anchor points…to pin that goose in place.…On the front, on the back, and one on the foot.…And to make things easier to see,…let's hide that triangular mesh.…It's still operating,…it's just not getting in our way anymore.…When we click and place a point at the base of the neck,…we can now pick this neck up…and we can bring it all the way down to the ground.…To rotate around this point, hold the alt or option key,…move just outside it,…and you can see how the cursor changes.…
And now you can twist that.…So we can turn it around so it looks like this goose…
