Hi there Bill,
I have a copy of Photoshop 3.x and I know that I could do what you mentioned.
I also have another member named Leif Hold, he is great with graphics but he
sincerly is a pain. I and another member have flat out refused to let him near
us because of his attitude. So Leif would be a last resort, but I know what I
would do to get the balloon to bend, just pinch half the picture at different
pressures. You can send the picture as long as it is not more than 200K. If
you want to join Foxchange you can. If you want a link to your source when it
comees, I can do that too.
