Chapter 10. Photograph: Retouching Portraits > Removing Love Handles - Pg. 315

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Get the Push Left tool from the Toolbox (it's the sixth one down from the top). It was called the Shift Pixels tool in Photoshop 6 and 7, but Adobe realized that you were getting used to the name, so they changed it, just to keep you on your toes. Then, choose a relatively small brush size using the Brush Size field near the top-right of the Liquify dialog. Now paint a downward stroke starting just above and outside the love handle and continuing downward. The pixels will shift back in toward the body, removing the love handle as you paint. Step Four: When you click OK, the love handle repair is complete. (Note: If you need to remove love handles on the left side of the body, paint upward rather than downward. Why? That's just the way it works.) Before After Retouching Portraits Chapter 10 315
