Lesson 9. Typographic Design > Warping a layer

Warping a layer

All of the text is now on the label, but there’s one problem: The bottle looks three-dimensional, while the label looks unrealistically flat on its surface. So your final effect will be to warp the label and its contents to look like they realistically conform to the bottle shape.

Earlier in this lesson, you warped the words “Olive Oil” so that the letters appeared wavy. For this exercise, however, you will apply the warp transformation to a layer, rather than to individual letters. To do this, you will group the label and type layers, and then transform the new, grouped layer using the Smart Objects feature. Using Smart Objects allows you to continue to edit both the contents of the layer (the type) and to edit the warp after you apply the transformation.
