          you can't - flash does not have an image warp feature - you would have to do 1 of 2 things:

          Trace Bitmap the image to convert it to vectors - then use Free transform tool > Envelope or Distort
          tools.

          OR

          Bend the image in P'shop and then import into flash.

          If you need to bend the image as an animation - then flash is not your tool - i would highly
          recommend Animae Studio (www.e-frontier.com) for this (I use it all the time). It supports IK
          (Bones) and Image Warp - then export as Quicktime and Import into flash.

          hope this helps

            You can bend and warp vector images with The Tab (www.the-tab.com), and export them as Flash movies. It also has several effects borrowed from Illustrator and from higher end animation programs that are not available in Flash, such as textured lines. It's a very cool animation program, though the interface is very different than anything you're used to.
