Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Liquify to change the shape, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
In this project we will be working on this photograph of a professional athlete,…and the intent of this image was to leave a little bit of headroom, so there…is space for copy or for marketing.…Then we have the subject here in natural or available light.…It's a very natural image.…So we want to do is want to keep in track with that natural feel, yet we want to…enhance this and bring out some of these qualities.…In particular, bring out some of the strength of this particular athlete.…So first let's go ahead and click in our Background layer.…Then we'll press Command+J on Mac, Ctrl+J on Windows, and let's name this new layer shape.…
Next, zoom in a little bit.…You can do so by pressing Command+Plus on Mac, Ctrl+Plus on Windows, and then let's…navigate to our Filter pulldown menu.…Here we go ahead and choose Liquify.…In the Liquify dialog what we want to do is zoom in.…You can use your same shortcut, Command+Plus on Mac, Ctrl+Plus on Windows.…Next, we are going to use this top tool here, which allows us to move pixels around.…
