Chapter 19. Liquify > To extend distortions from frozen areas into unfrozen are...

To extend distortions from frozen areas into unfrozen areas:

1.
In the Liquify dialog box, use the Freeze tool (F) to freeze one or more areas that have already been distorted. In this case, the borders of the image will act as if they are frozen, too. You could try reconstructing an area between two frozen areas.

2.
In the Reconstruction area, choose a reconstruction Mode (other than Revert) from the pop-up menu .

3.
Choose the Reconstruct tool (E), then click and hold the mouse, or drag, on the image preview to restore unfrozen areas. Restoration occurs more quickly at the brush’s center. The distortion, if any, will be sampled from the starting point.

or

Click the Reconstruct button to reconstruct all the unfrozen areas. Your edits will be undone in reverse order, like a movie playing backwards. To stop the process in midstream, press Spacebar.

Note: Pressing Esc in Windows or Esc or Cmd-period in the Mac OS won’t stop the reconstruction process, even though the Adobe online help says it does.

Tip

To undo all of your distortion and tool settings changes without closing the dialog box, Alt-click/Option-click Reset.
