Hi guys, today i am going to show you all a cool tool from Adobe Photoshop cs5 for that you need Adobe Photoshop CS5, you can download it from here. I want to keep things very simple in this tutorial because this tool is very simple to use, but first of all lest drop few lines about this tool.

What puppet Warp does?

Puppet Warp overlays a Mesh (you can specify the tightness or looseness) over your object, lets you set Control Points ("pins"), and rotate your object around those Control Points. The Mesh magically gives your object a rubber-like quality so they bend, twist and warp naturally. You can rotate sections of your object in front or behind one another.

Lets start learning, here is what i used in my tutorial.

First of all remove the white background, use Magic Eraser Tool (E), if order to control the puppet we need to erase the background.

Now select puppet layer and go to Edit > Puppet Warp.

By default Photoshop CS5 ads a mesh around the layer you just activated Puppet Warp Tool, but i disabled the mesh, if you want to disable the mesh just right click on it and you will have a menu where you can disable it, and basically you will have all the options you can use there.

Now add some points on your puppet and move them.
