Hey guys, is there a way to draw points to create a bezier curve that (when manipulated) will morph/manipulate the surrounding area?

Cheers!

the closest thing I can think of @ the moment is to create a new layer, draw the bezier using the pen tool and then use the magic wand to select it, then u can work on your other layer with that selection. I'm not exactly sure if u can do bezier selections like that in photoshop. I usually do a lot of workarounds like that for selections and other stuff.... masking, just create a new layer... etc etc etc.

There used to be a plugin that worked sort of like the Reshape plugin for AE but I can't recall it's name.. It has been years siunce I used it and it was buggy back then. Of course if you have AE you could just do this in AE and then import it into PS.

It should also be noted for clarity too that the specific effect/procedure you described is not possible at all with Photoshop. A vector app such as AI or XaraX or CorelDraw can do 'part' of that type of effect. But not exactly as you described.

The Liquify tool is the closest thing PS has to the effect/procedure you've described. Try that out.
