Wrapping an Image around another for 3D effect?

Wrapping an Image around another for 3D effect?

Wrapping an Image around another for 3D effect?

How do you wrap an image around another to create a 3 dimensional look?  IE:  I have a block of text and I want to create a loop the goes around it so that the text block appears to be in the middle.

RE: Wrapping an Image around another for 3D effect?

Basically, you need a perspective trick, like some of the optical-illusion houses you see on the kid science shows: make 3 layers. Backmost is the stuff behind your type, middle is your type, then in front all the stuff in front (obviously) of your type.

You can try slicing the wrapping object, then cutting and pasting in front. In the worst case you may have to draw a new object for the front. Not putting in borders helps the illusion (no visible seams). You can also use clipping paths to mask otherwise visible elements that destroy the illusion.

Hope this helps.
