This is probably a rookie mistake...
I create a rectangular frame and use "transform" to shear it into a parallelogram
I select "place" to put an image in this skewed frame.
The image itself becomes skewed as well, but I want it to stay "normal" and undistorded
I'm missing something basic and obvious - but what?
Thanks in advance!
Before you place the image do following:
Now you can place the image without tranfering the transformation.
Works! Many thanks.
alternatively do the shearing with the Direct Selection tool.
That will move the path points and does not do a transformation of the rectangle, but changes the shape of the rectangle.
With the Selection Tool and Transform you keep the rectangle and do "only" a transformation that the contents, your image, has to follow.
