I am trying to distort an image and when i use the free transform tool nothing happens? I can pull from the corners and a box moves but nothing actually happens with the image it just says "Shape Expanded". How do I fix this?

The corner handles are part of the bounding box and will only enlarge and/or rotate the shape. Try pulling and pushing on the handles that are created between the corner handles with the Free Transform tool to alter the shape. For more uses of the Free Transform Tool see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov7zjdJp8sQ.

Is it a vector-based image? If so, the Perspective Distort and Free Distort tools should be able to work (unless there are live type objects in the selection). It's possible to distort a raster (pixel) based image, such as a photograph, using Envelope Distort commands.
