Liquify Filter Tools

One of the most commonly used image manipulation tools in Photoshop is the Liquify Plug-in. It features 8 different image-distortion tools. Let me demonstrate the effects of these tools by using this sexy image of Megan Fox (wink, wink).

If you want to tag along, open an image in PS then go to Filter>Liquify or press Shift+Ctrl+X.

Here are the Liquify Tools:

Wrap Tool - Freehand distortion

Turbulence Tool - Ripple effect

Twirl Clockwise/Counter-clockwise - Self explanatory

Pucker Tool - Shrinking effect

Bloat Tool - again, self-explanatory

Pixel Shift - Compresses the image to the left while
pressing downwards, to the right if otherwise

Reflection Tool - self-explanatory

So now you know how fashion magazines make their models super skinny, just remember not to overuse it. =) And that's a wrap!
