Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Thinning legs, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
Great to have you back, in this movie, we are going to continue to work on this particular image, and what we are going to do…in this movie is look at how we can thin legs, and we are going to look at another technique for thinning.…This time we are going to be using Liquify.…let's go ahead and merge all of our underline layers to New Layer, and we are going to do that by way…of shortcut Shift+Option+Command+E for the Mac, Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E for the PC, and we will name this layer legs.…Next, we will navigate to the Filter drop-down menu and choose Liquify.…Alright, let's zoom in on the legs.…
So we will go ahead and zoom in on that portion of the image.…We are going to choose this particular tool, which is called the Push Left Tool.…Now, this tool is a really good tool although it can do a ton of damage.…The trick with Liquify is to pull your settings way back and make subtle improvements.…So I'm going to take my Brush Density down a little bit here to about the 40s.…My Brush Pressure that's going to go really low as well probably to 32 and let's give this a try.…
