In this tutorial we'll be creating the effect of a rippling flag using custom artwork and one of Photoshop's oldest distortion filters, Displace. The filter uses a monochrome image map to distort the pixels of the target layer based on the tones of the map.

The latest Photoshop update has caused a lot of interest, and why not, the list of updates is pretty impressive! You can find list below of some of the major updates, but there’s one on the list, tucked right at the bottom, that I’ve be dreaming of since goodness knows when!
