Chapter 18. Retouching > The Liquify Filter

The Liquify Filter

The Liquify filter will allow you to pull and push on your image as if it were printed on Silly Putty. The results you will get out of this filter will either be overly obvious (looking like a reflection in a fun house mirror), or not noticeable to the untrained eye. It all depends on your intentions. When you choose Filter > Liquify, you'll see a dialog box that dominates your screen (Figure 18.92). Let's run down the tools that appear in the upper left of the dialog box. We'll start out by making radical changes to an image just so you can see what each tool does; once you're familiar with each one, we'll explore some real-world applications of these tools where the results are much more subtle.
