Doing my in, Warp Tool

Hey Guys

I want to overlay a page of artwork on a book that has been photographed.

What I want to do is:

Distort the image (free transform) to roughly fit the page, then switch to the warp tool, and keep the same grid on the image, transform it a bit and be done with it.

However, when I transform the image, it wont let me use the warp tool as I normally would. I see the grid and the handles to move, but it wont let me move the handles, which is what I need to do.

Does anyone have an idea? This really is doing my head in.

Yes I know the image is a bit blurry, this is on purpose.

Get the size for the page right and then use the displace tool

You mean the displacement filter? Use the page as a displacement map and then wrap it around that? I'm not quite clear what you mean Chris, sorry
