Hour 4. Transformations > Warp and Liquify

Warp and Liquify

Not all transformations have to be useful. The folks at Adobe have added something that's more of a wonderful toy than a tool. It's called Liquify, and it does exactly that to an image. You can swirl the image, make it bulge or shrink, and generally have fun with it. This tool is found on the Filter menu. Pick a photo, or just draw a squiggle on a blank canvas and play with it yourself. Here's my attempt (see Figure 4.20) at liquifying the fashion doll. Of course, you can also use it “seriously” to turn a frown into a smile or to widen a photo subject's squinting eyes. Use light pressure, and don't overdo it.

Figure 4.20. Salvador Dali would have loved this.
