Description
Pin Warp warps specific image areas using pins, while leaving other areas untouched using tacks. Adjustments can range from subtle nip and tucks to something more obvious like repositioning an arm or leg.

Pins
A total of 20 pins can be added to an image. Pins have a source (green circle) and target (red circle). The farther the target is dragged from the source, the more the image warps.

Source X/Y
The source (start) pin point.

The strength of the warp effect. Decreasing the Strength virtually moves the target toward the source position without having to move the target.
