    Nice tutorial. Same problem with other users. How can I get the warp function?
    It is very useful if you can share how we could get the warp function. Can you give it to me? please.

  8. Tom is right, the warp function is only available on Photoshop CS2, I am not really sure how to this effect with the previous photoshop version

  11. monica says:

    I have photoshop CS2 but not the function warp. Can you help me?

  12. Frank says:

    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

  15. 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.

  16. Tess says:

    Thanks a lot … you make it sound easy.. hopefully I can follow…

  17. Kaya says:

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

    Thanks; I had wondered how to do this!

  18. KimberlyRae says:

    Hello
    Wow! This is GREAT! I’m using CS3 photoshop and when I get to the warping it warps BUT it leaves my white border OFF the curl part and ONLY leaves it on the under part and the border….help please???? TYIA!

  19. Rubrics Cubed says:

    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.

  20. Gary says:

    outstanding – much appreciated!

    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!
