the Warp Mesh tool; how to use?

the Warp Mesh tool; how to use?

In Paintshop Pro 11, I am trying to put a photo onto a coffee mug. To do that I'm trying to use the Warp Mesh tool to curve the photo to match the curvature of the mug. The mesh is set to a very small grid but I cannot see any way to curve the photo other than by manually moving the grid intersections, one at a time, up; this is very awkward and not very accurate. Is there a better way to do this?

RE: the Warp Mesh tool; how to use?

Don't have PSP 11, using PSP 9 at the moment, but I'm assuming the tools are still similar.
Try using the warp brush instead.  Set the image as a separate layer. Set the brush size to be around 30% larger than the image you're warping and gently nudge it to the curvature you need.  You may need to experiment a little with the brush size and maybe nudge just the left and right edges a bit to get it to look right.
