I am making a poster for Veterans Day. I have an image of a pair of hands palms up, slightly cupped. I have another image of a Flag. I want to place the flag in the cupped hands, and have the flag appear as if it is laying within those cupped hands. The best way I know to describe my desired effect is if you think of a "reversed bloat" using the Distort Filter, but I can't seem to find that. Does that make sense? Any suggestions? PSD attached. I'm using PSE 2020 on a Windows 10 platform.
You can also use the Filters>Distort>Liquify> Pucker and Bloat tools. But, that involves more guessing on how to distort the flag.
You can do this by using a displacement map:
Thank you, the displacement map procedure looks like it will work.
You're welcome. Glad to help.
