Lesson 6. Transforming Objects > Changing the perspective

Changing the perspective

Now you'll use the free transform tool to change the perspective of the orange slice.

With the orange slice selected, select the free transform tool ( ) in the toolbox.

Position the double-headed arrow pointer over the bottom left corner of the object's bounding box, and select the bottom left corner handle (don't release the mouse button). Hold down Shift+Alt+Ctrl (Windows) or Shift+Option+Command (Mac OS), and slowly drag up to change the perspective of the object.

Holding down Shift as you drag scales the objects proportionally, holding down Alt/Option scales from the center point, and holding down Ctrl/Command as you drag distorts the object from the anchor point or bounding box handle that you're dragging.

Select the group-selection tool ( ) in the toolbox, and click away from the orange slice to deselect it. Then Shift-click to select the segments of the orange slice and its rind. (Don't select the inner white pith of the rind.)

In the Swatches palette, select the Pale Orange gradient swatch to paint the selected objects with a lighter gradient.
