The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Press V to get the Move tool and drag the label onto your wine bottle image. Press Command-T (PC: Control-T) to bring up Free Transform. Press-and-hold the Shift key, grab the bottom-right cor- ner point, and drag inward to scale the label down so it fits easily on the front of the bottle. Then, click-and-drag within the bounding box to position the label in the center of the bottle. As you can see, the label looks very flat, very "stuck-on- after-the-fact" because it doesn't follow the contours of the bottle, and it covers the highlights of the bottle. It couldn't look more "faked." Step Four: While Free Transform is still in place, Control-click (PC: Right-click) within the Free Transform bounding box and a contextual menu of transformations will appear. Choose Warp from the menu. Continued Photographic Special Effects Chapter 11 327
