The transformation tool in Photoshop is quite mighty. You can rotate, flip, stretch, squeeze and distort your selection.

Here is a less known secret: With this little trick you can repeat the last transformation as a copy – so you can build all kinds of complex ornaments, wings and patterns within seconds.

Here is how to make this work:

  1. select the transform tool (edit -> transform -> free – or ctrl+t)
  2. select the anchor point
  3. select your transformation (rotate / scale and so on)
  4. Now you do a transform again + copy layer (ctrl+shift+alt+t)

The sample you are seeing the video is from the Raw Exchange Light Wings package.
