Using the Warp tool in Photoshop to tune up the look of your photography is just a matter of a few clicks. No doubt, while warping the image, you have to adjust different parts of the working image craftily.
In this tutorial, we will warp 2 different images with 2 different goals. Let’s crack on…
First of all, select the image you want to warp and open it in Photoshop. Once opened, unlock the background layer by clicking the lock icon. After that, duplicate the layer by clicking Ctrl + J.
Now, navigate to the Edit tab and click it straightaway. In the drop-down menu, move down to “Transform” and select “Warp” from the menu extended on the right.
Once you click the “Warp” tool, a selection around your image will show up immediately. This selection will let you warp and distort your image to bring out the intended result.
The selection shows some circular or control points on various portions of your image that you can click and move to change the composition of your image. You can also click and drag the rectangular divisions to alter the appearance of your image.
Here, our goal is to increase the height of the stacked stones. By dragging the right-middle rectangular box upward, we tried to make the stacked stones taller.
In the image below, the stacked stones look taller than the original image, which is the result of warping the image.
Like before, select the 2nd image that you want to warp and then open it in Photoshop. Once the image is opened, unlock the background layer by hitting the lock icon. Thereafter, duplicate the layer like before by clicking Ctrl + J.
Now, move to the “Edit” tab and click it right away. A drop-down menu will show up where you have to move down to “Transform” and select “Warp” from the expanded menu on the right.
After you select the “Warp” tool, a selection surrounding your image will appear instantly. This selection will allow you to warp and distort your image to yield the desired outcome.
The selection showcases some circular or control points on different parts of your image that you can click and move to alter the composition of your image. You can also click and drag the rectangular divisions to tweak the appearance of your image.
Here, our goal is to highlight and increase focus on the dog. By dragging the middle rectangular box cross-wise, we have highlighted the dog, especially, one side of the dog. The warping also takes away the focus from the cat.
In the image below, the dog grabs the attention with a closer look than the cat, which is the outcome of warping the image.
