Hello Monica,

if you have realy CS2, you should have the function warp! Please go to edit >transform, in the end off the list you should find the entry warp.
If not, maybe you have the old version CS of Photoshop…

Sorry for my bad English ;-)

A bit off the subject.

I just got my new Canon EOS Rebel XTI/400D and I currently have Adobe Photoshop 7.0. I can’t seem to get photoshop to open Raw images.

thanks

Peter, I don’t think PS7 supports RAW files from 400D. Try to download the Camera Raw 3.7 plug-in first… See how it goes.

There isn’t a warp feature in PS 7, people.

Thanks; I had wondered how to do this!

Not everyone is a millionaire or full-time graphics design pro who can afford every blasted version upgrade Adobe pumps out. IMHO, it’d be really helpful if ALL tutorial creators would CLEARLY LABEL their tuts with a minimum PS value i.e., PS 5.5 and 6, or 7+ (similar to Win reqs – i.e., Win98/WinXP) so when we Google for ‘em, useless tuts wouldn’t show up to send us on wild goose chases.

I had the same problem using PS7 . . . no warp tool. But I found this easy answer on the internet.

In PS7 you have to use the sherize and pinch filters, add some drop shadows and highlights and there you have it. You’ll have to play with the filters, but they work great! Hope this helps.

Have tried this one and some others. They are not suitable for HQ work. The only benefit they’re free.

Sorry, I gotta find a better solution. maybe even the plugin!
