Adobe photoshop has a feature called warp that I would love to see in Affinity Photo. When you click on the warp feature, it looks similar to the perspective feature in Photo (with the grid over the image). The difference with warp is that instead of only the four spots (points that can be dragged) on the four corners, each intersection of the grid is a moveable point. This is particularly useful when trying to make shadows that make papers or cards look curled. The warp feature allows the user to bend a shadow in the center of a side instead of just pulling out the corners. I'll attach an image to show you what I mean.

Affinity Photo has a Mesh Warp Tool that will do as you want.

It starts with a basic rectangular grid so just double click the edges of the grid to add additional nodes and lines, which can be adjusted individually

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Thank you, Carl123. That tool is just what I need. Like Glicky said, I would also love to see perspective and warp tool in designer. That type of feature is the only reason that I need both programs right now.

For perspective you got isometric.

Isometric is not the same as perspective.

 

Note that the tools in Photo are *raster* tools and will rasterize whatever they are applied to.

There are numerous other threads already requesting *vector* versions of these tools for Designer and Publisher, which is really what we should be looking for.  Also would be nice if they could be applied to artistic text while keeping it as editable text (not as important to do this for frame text).
