Hour 20. Making Composite Images > Using Distortions to Blend Composite Images

Using Distortions to Blend Composite Images

Distortions are mainly used when you need to wrap something around something else. You can stretch type around a can of soup or show how a design will look on a mug. This kind of composite is more practical than artistic. If you’re wrapping type, you may be able to use the Warp Text button. Otherwise, if you’re trying to wrap an image or shape around an object, Distort (or possibly Skew) is what you need. Hour 6 can help you with the basics of warping text, while Hour 10 is the one to check for help with Distort and Skew. Let’s try warping some type around a can.

In Figure 20.45, I’ve drawn a can and set some type to go on it.
