Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing the shape of the body, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
In the previous movie we worked on cleaning up some of the blemishes.…In this movie we're going to work on the overall body shape.…So let's go ahead and merge all our clean up down.…Click on the Top Layer, hold down the Shift key, click on the layer clean_up and press Command+E for the Mac,…Ctrl+E for the PC, and name that layer clean up.…Now, we need to duplicate this layer.…There are a number of different ways to do that.…Just to show you yet another, hold down the Control key, click on the layer and choose Duplicate Layer.…I like that because I'm able to name the layer, and I'll call this layer shape.…
Next, we're going to navigate to our Filter drop down menu and choose Liquify.…Now, what we're going to do here is work on the overall shape.…We're going to increase our Brush Size quite a bit here.…Make that, let's say about 200, and our Brush Density really high, Brush Pressure really low.…We'll zoom on the image a little bit, and what I want to do is just go ahead…and modify the shape of these legs just a little bit.…
