Re: How do I cover my couch with new material

Don't even know if anyone is interested but Swampy's suggestion plus using the Pen tool seemed to give me something that would pacify my wife. I guess this was not as easy as I initially thought.

Thanks for your input. Appreciated.

Re: How do I cover my couch with new material

here's my 1st try at wrapping a couch....could be much better, but the manual for squizz is written very poorly(aren't they all?) and i haven't used the plug-in for some time...

What, pray tell, is the vanishing point filter?

It appeared in CS2. It allows you to set a perspective grid and clone into it. Useful for floors, bricks or any repeating pattern that needs extending and which would thwart standard cloning. CS3's version is more robust in the ways you can set your grids.

I found in CS2 that it was often easier to clone simple things in Vanishing Point because you get to see what is loaded in your clone brush (much like you can now in CS3). I would just set a flat perspective by using the four corners of the image when setting up the grid.
