Do more with the Liquify Tool

It is a common misconception that the Liquify Tool is only used for making people thin. In this episode we show you another great use for the Liquify Tool – fixing and adjusting clothing.

You will learn some of the key techniques to learning the Liquify Tool including:

  • Change Brush Size Often – Each area of your image will probably require using a different sized Brush. The fastest way to change your brush Size in Photoshop is to hold Control+Option(Alt) and click and drag your mouse to the left or right. When using a PC be sure to right click.
  • Brush Pressure – It is better to use a lower pressure and make little Adjustments than use a high pressure and have to undo your extreme changes.
  • Brush Density – Keep your Brush density on the higher end. This will allow you to effect a larger area per Stroke, creating more natural alterations.

If you have never used Levels to adjust Color in your images you will be amazed at how much control you can have using a simple Levels slider.
