Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video The enhanced Liquify filter, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
One of Photoshop's most popular filters is Liquify.…What it allows you to do is brush in distortions and makes structural…modifications to an image.…In CS6, Liquify has received some minor but important enhancements.…Now the Liquify filter is not applicable to smart objects; we have to apply it…to a pixel-based image, such as the one I have open here.…I'm going to go up to the Filter menu, choose the Liquify command, and I'll…zoom in on the image.…Now the first thing you may notice about Liquify is that it's more responsive,…especially when you're working on very large image files.…
And that's because it's one of the handful features that have been integrated…into Adobe's so-called Mercury Graphics Engine.…And what that means is many of its routines have been handed off to the GPU, and…other examples of commands like this, by the way, are Warp, Puppet Warp, some…stuff that's going on with the new Crop tool, and 3D shadows and reflections,…which we'll look at in a future movie.…The other thing worth noting is that the interface has been dramatically…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
