Liquify Filter Question
on Aug 12, 2008 at 4:11:02 pm

All,

I tried performing a search prior to this but was unable to come up with anything. Here goes...

I have done a significant amount of photo retouching throughout my career and am no stranger to removing blemishes, smoothing skin, changing hair color, etc.

Recently, a model asked me is I could enhance her chest region. The photos are of her in a bikini and she wants just a slight adjustment to this area. I have tried a couple of things with the Liquify filter but I seem to keep affecting the pixels in the background, around her arms and her stomach. Is there a way to just mask off the area I need to be affected by the Liquify filter and make the adjustments then without distorting the surrounding pixels?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I found the Freeze Mask tool and now can do exactly what I want with these images.

In addition to freeze mask tool I recomend drawing a selection marquee slightly larger than your target area prior to choosing liquify (helps speed up things).

I have better success setting the brush strength to a low setting, and using the proper size brush.

Thanks Mike. I will use both methods and see how well things develop, um, er turn out.
