Can someone please tell me how to free transform an image in painter 11? I can't figure it out despite a bunch of fidgeting and google searching. I can move a section of an image around by selecting it and floating it and then dragging it, but I can't make it smaller or larger or rotate it or warp it etc.
Ctrl+Alt+T or Edit>Free Transform. Then select an option from the Property Bar at the top (Scale, Skew, Distort, etc.).

@ Improv: RTFM stands for read the f***ing manual.
@ Jason Ross and Brian.May; I read the painter help guide, it just tells you how to transform shapes, which is less than useless. And if you type "free transform" into the search section of the painter help guide it finds 0 topics. Hopefully next time some one asks you guys a genuine question you'll provide a helpful answer instead of just being pretentious jerks.
@Joeparis. Thanks for your help. You are awesome. If you ever come to Australia I will bake you a pie. ^_^

Hopefully the next time someone gives you a genuine answer that seems too simple not to know in the first place, you won't waste time wasting our time.@ Jason Ross and Brian.May; I read the painter help guide, it just tells you how to transform shapes, which is less than useless.

I typed in "Free Transform" and this is what I got:
Using Orientation Effects
On this page, you will find information about
• Rotating Images
• Scaling Images
• Flipping Images
• Distorting Images
• Free-Transforming Images
Anything in there seem like info you needed?
You have to make sure you select the 'Help Topics' choice from the Help menu, rather than the stupid and completely useless 'User Guide' pdf file option, which Corel decided would somehow replace the paper manual in version 11, without it actually having any of the instructional info from the manual. What a waste of space that is. The 'Help Topics' on the other hand (which was always included) is pretty good.
While I know how o free transform in Corel, I wish I didn't have to select the options at the top menu bar. Creative Suite got me attuned to free transform being capable of moving/scaling/skewing/rotating all combined in the free-transform.
Having to select the menu at the top is navigation time I hate wasting...
All the operations are also accessible by holding the Control key and dragging the corner points or the middle points so you actually don't have to go to the top of the window.
Hi, I have a question which is loosely related to this topic. Is it possible to get a preview when transforming something? (a preview like in photoshop)....This is something that really bothers me in Painter -- that you have to guess your transformation and hit Enter to actually see it. (I am running Painter 10)
Thanks in advance! (don't hit me if I have missed something, i am fairly new to Painter!)
Yes, it is VERY annoying in Painter X not to see the preview. However, it was finally introduced into Painter 11. One of the main reasons for upgrading.
Is there a way to do free transforms with a wrap like tool just as you can in photoshop? So far the transformations that I have been able to see are limited to the bounding box and most objects are not quite deformable with just a box.
Use the "xPerspective Tiling 4P" cloner brush which will allow certain transform type effects with a tile/wrap effect.
That one is okish, but I am looking to be able to bend the edges as if they were flexible. There is a transform grid that does that exactly in photoshop, I was just wondering if there is a similar one - maybe an additional effect - for painter.
Thanks a lot for the tip tho, just not exactly what I am looking for.
