Hi all, here is Silke.
Today I will show you how wave a filmstrip with the wrap tool, like my sample here below:
First of all, I did a free Filmstrip for you. Catch this free bonus file from the end of this post and then follow these easy steps here below.
You will learn how to:
- duplicate the filmstrip frame and merge these
- wave the filmstrip frame with Wrap Tool.
Open a new document. 3600 x 3600 x 300 dpi and place the SILKE_filmstrip_frame_4exercise.png to your document.
Now duplicate this frame layer, reposition it and merge the layer down.
If your layer has a little icon on the layer corner (smart object) – and you cannot see the merge down option – you have first to rasterize these layers. See here how:
Now merge both layers
Using the Wrap Tool to wave your Filmstrip Frame:
Click the frame layer and then go to Edith> Transform > Wrap
Click on the blue and read points marked with 1 to 4 and move up. You have to play and adjust everything until you are happy with the result!
Ready! Use your imagination, double the original file more then once and create your own waved filmstrip frame!

I am adding here a video where I show you how to wave it using Photoshop CS6. No sound. But easy to follow!
Where is the link for the freebie? Thanks for the tut.
I can not download the freebie.
Sorry about that. We just moved the blog to a new server, now the blog freebie is updated!
Thank you so much. Love these tutorials.
We moved the blog and then all further comments doesn’t show up.
I have another question. When I go to warp I do not see the red dots. Not sure
how to get that showing. I use Photoshop CC latest version.
Hi Christina – about your question.
The red dots are from me, only to point to you where to click with the mouse.
Our dear Elly told me that the newest version (CC2021) is a little bit different.
To get a grid to warp we have to choose one of the grid options.
Or you can simply choose Flag from the pre-made Warp shapes.
OK… I made a warped frame… I am very familiar with the warp tool… and use it all the time… BUT I have serious questions about your instructions… Why do we need 2 copies if we are going to merge them together? What on earth does mend mean in this context, and how on earth do you get the grid to only be on the film strip… mine is the whole page, as usual… This must be something in CC… Which I really need to start using… have had it for months! Thanks for your input… Liz
Hi, Liz. I did a video and hope that it answer your questions. Duplicate the freebie to make it longer (to mend two parts of a film strip = mend = duplicate the small piece and then merge both)
If you select the new merged filmstrip and then choose the wrap tool it will envelope only the film and not the whole page.
