Warp a specific area of an image

The Warp tool lets you push and pull a specific area of an image in any direction. You can use Warp to subtly fix certain imperfections or completely distort images, creating a melted or liquified look.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Tools > Reshape > Warp (from the Tools menu at the top of your screen).
    • In the Tools sidebar, click or choose if from the grouped tools.
  2. In the Tool Options pane, customize the Warp tool:

    Brush Size: Drag the Brush Size slider to adjust the size of the Warp tool brush. Hold down the Option ⌥ key to extend the range of the Brush Size slider beyond 100%. You can also manually enter a value from 0% to 200%.

    Strength: Drag the Strength slider to adjust the intensity of the warping effect.

    Tip: You can use the [ and ] keys on your keyboard to change the size of the Warp tool brush. 

  3. Click and drag an area of your image to warp it.

Show Original: Click the Show Original button or press Control ⌃ + M on your keyboard to see what the image looked like before you warped anything in it.

Click Reset to discard all the current changes made with the Warp tool.
