Photoshop CS5 Top 5: Puppet Warp

With the new puppet warp feature in Photoshop CS5, you can bend images to your will—literally. Add control points, called pins, to an image, and then drag them to reposition parts of the image. Change the position of an arm, a leg, a lock of hair. Turn a straight pathway into a meandering one.

In today’s installment of Photoshop CS5 Top 5, Deke McClelland explores a feature he calls “fun to use, funny to watch, and extremely powerful.” Take a fifteen-minute tour of the Puppet Warp feature, then head over to check out all of our Adobe CS5 training to explore new courses and tutorials covering Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Flash, Premiere, and more.
