How to use Perspective Warp in Photoshop CC

Adobe Photoshop CC has just released a major update with some new killer features. Perspective Warp Tool is one of them, let me show you what you can do with it.

1.
 

Click here, to download nice looking road from the beautiful New Zealand and open it.

Picture was downloaded from http://mirror-us-ga1.gallery.hd.org/.

You can use any other picture as well but you will need to improvise a bit.

 
 
2.
 

In the menu click File and choose Place Embedded...

 
 
3.
 

Click here, to download a picture of a big American style truck.

Picture of the truck was downloaded from moderntraining.com.

 
 
4.
 

Place the image of the truck over the document and press Enter.

 
 
5.
 

As you can see it looks like the truck is losing control and sliding off the road. But with the little Perspective Warp magic, we will put it right back on its track.

In the menu click Edit and choose Perspective Warp.

 
 
6.
 

Now click the front of the truck and a warp grid should appear (see picture).

 
 
7.
 

Now adjust the front end of the truck by dragging the grid corners so you get the correct perspective of the truck.

As you can see I aligned the upper grid line with the truck's grill and the bottom one with the shadow of the truck.

 
 
8.
 

Now click further along the truck for the second warp grid.

Don't click the grid you already created.

 
 
9.
 

Now stretch the grid in way it will fit the truck's back end trailer (see picture).

 
 
10.
 

Now press/hold Shift key and click/hold the left side of the grid ...

 
 
11.
 

... and drag it towards the first grid you created earlier until they merge (see picture).

 
 
12.
 

Press/hold Shift key and click/hold the upper side of the grid then drag it up so the whole truck will end up being "trapped" in the grid.

 
 
13.
 

Click the Warp button.

 
 
14.
 

Now click/drag the bottom rear part of the grid (see picture) ...

 
 
15.
 

... and drag it to the left or anywhere you want to position the truck.

Back on the road in my case.


 
 
16.
 

Do the same with the upper right corner (see picture).

 
 
17.
 

All you have to do now is to click the Commit Perspective Warp or press Enter.

 
 
18.
 

The truck is back on the road looking pretty darn realistic.

How's that for a magic trick ;)

And again, the state before we used the Perspective Warp tool.
