My goal is to create a look where the picture is cut off at an angle with a bunch of other pictures so the frames look like a slant and create angles -- but I don't want the picture inside the frame to warp. I created a square frame, sheared it and then inserted the picture, but it took the shape of the frame and slanted the whole picture. Now it looks warped and I don't want that.
I've seen designers do it many times, but try as I might, I can't get the same effect.
Is there something I'm missing?
Use the pen tool to modify the frame.
PERFECT!!! Thank you! Worked exactly how I wanted it to!
