The Envelope Tool


WHEN USING THE free transform tool with raw vector objects, the Distort and Envelope subselection tools become available. This is where you can really have some fun warping and deforming shapes as if they were clay. Think of how your reflection looks in a fun house mirror and you’ll start to get an idea as to what these tools are useful for. If you need to be precise with how your images are scaled, rotated or skewed, use the Transform panel to type in your values for the respective transformation.
