Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Distorting with the Liquify Persona, part of Affinity Photo Essential Training.
Affinity Photo has a number of tools…for warping and distorting images.…We'll start off by looking at the Liquefy tool.…Because this takes up a different interface,…it's called a Liquefy Persona,…and you access it from the second button on the top here.…You can see this grid over the top,…and the main tool you're going to use…is the Push Forward Tool.…Let's hide the grid.…Grid's not going to help.…
And we use this tool to smear things around.…So let's Zoom In.…And let's try and give this man a bit of a smile.…As usual, we can change the brush size…by holding Control and Option,…and we drag left to make the brush smaller,…and right to make it bigger.…And we can use this tool to push the pixels.…So we can push up in this corner,…like that, and we can get more of a smile on here.…
If we want to make him frown,…well, it's just a question of pushing the pixels down.…But you can see, as we do it with a brush this size,…we start to get these wrinkles in it.…So let's Undo, and we can Undo selectively,…using the Reconstruct Tool.…
