Deform Selection tool


Recommended Posts

I want to thank all those who have worked on creating this wonderful program and everyone who contributed!

 

To make a 3D cover works very difficult in the absence of Deform Selection tool type.

 

Is it possible to have such a tool in the future?

 

I made that using Oblique plugin, but as I said very hard:

Thanks welshblue, I have these plugins, I tested it

 

but is not just what I wanted.

 

 

I use 2 pictures in 2 layers: one is front cover and one is spine of book

 

 

I need to deform its how I want and link it to look like in first image.

Use the oblique plugin with Y offset at 50 and -50 for the spine and cover (respectively). Use the move tool to put them in their proper positions. Duplicate the cover layer and move it to where the back cover would be (make sure it's the bottom layer). On a layer above the back cover, connect the corners of the book using the line too. Pull out your paint bucket and set the tolerance to 69% and fill the parallelogram. Done. That wasn't so bad, was it?

1. Load first image

2. Load second image

3. Go to first image

4. Select All

5. Copy

6. Canvas Size

7. Image > Canvas Size = 200%

8. Add New Layer

9. Paste

10. Move, centrate image and deselect

11. Delete Background

12. Effect > Distort > Oblique and parameters is: x = 0.00 and y = – 0.35

13. Go to second image

14. Select All

15. Copy

16. Go to first image

17. Paste in to New Layer

18. Move, centrate image and deselect

19. Effect > Distort > Oblique and parameters is: x = 0.00 and y = 0.35

20. Move and put to proper position

Sometimes is need to contract/expand image to make the book more slim/thick and then

is need to move again in proper position.

etc. etc.

 

So, is not so easy how you told us. There are more than 20 steps.

And is not posible to record this for later use to another cover. Or is it?

With Deform Selection tool would be easier.

 


Anyway, I falling in love for this program and this forum.

Amazing plugins, amazing peoples! Thanks all!

Oh. You're counting mouse clicks. That explains a lot.

Seriously, though. It took me just under a minute to do it. It can't be all that bad.
