skew?


Recommended Posts

I want to attempt to place a human figure in an existing picture, and put a shadow on the floor to match the others shadows already there.

My method starts out with duplicating the layer with the figure, turning it black, doing a gaussian blur on it.

I want then to skew it, so it matches the plane of the floor and the angle of the other shadows.

Roll/Rotate works pretty much, except the feet will no longer match up.

Is there a skew plug in?

Why not? It should be a piece of cake!

I don't know the process when it comes to programming a plug in, but all one has to do is approximate the selection with a rectangle.

You then shift each row of pixels over based on the horizontal skew angle.

You then shift each column of pixels up or down based on the vertical skew angle.

What is so hard about that?

I mean, if MS Paint can do it...
