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.
