Puppet warp. Never heard of it. Until I saw something about puppet warp on Lynda.com’s Facebook page. Hmmm, sounded interesting, and I really wondered if it was available to me because I had never seen it. Well, it’s there, but missed it. There’s a little video explaining how to improve a photo, in this case, remove those love handles. I’ve been experimenting with variations on a line (see the result of the drawing on the right here), and had something I kind of liked with circles made of dotted lines. I decided to use this drawing and play with this. The first step is to “lasso” it. Then you make another layer and go to puppet warp. It makes all those little triangles all over the design. You then put in some dots that are going to be the places where you drag to change the design. From there you push and shove and play around with those dots until you finally think you’re done. When you go to “save as,” you are asked if you want to apply the changes. Below is my final result, not great, but there are possibilities. From what I can tell, not being much of a really good user of Photoshop, the puppet warp gives you more places to make changes than does “free transform.” Fun stuff to think about, though.
