I am trying to fit a small PNG image into a bigger JPG image.
To do it properly I need to distort PNG with the Perspective function so that it fits precicely into where I need it.
In my Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended Version 10.0 I created a new file, drugged the JPG onto the existing layer.
Then added another layer and using File-->Place placed my PNG there.
However in Edit-->Transform function Perspective is greyed:
When I work just with a single layer with this same PNG in it, Perpective is available and works.
What am I doing wrong and how do I get round it?
You haven't yet finished placing your file as a layer. Your image still shows the Place box, not the regular transform box.
U mean I have not press ENTER after placing - actially I did. Repeated several times with no joy.
But I have just managed to sort this out by doing Rasterize Smart Object.
What exactly does is mean?
I thought the JPG and PNG are already raster objects, and to distort it is better to vectorize them. At least this way it works in FLASH.
