Big Help - Slim Stomach

Hi all,
Someone took a candid photo of me and my professor on our trip to the Bahamas - I was wondering if anyone can make my stomach look tinier? I think it might be a little challenge given the positioning of my arm.

Any attempts would be appreciated!

Thanks!
Jen

Hi Jen,

I used the liquify filter in Photoshop CS2.

Re: Big Help - Slim Stomach

G'day Sobe, Are you asking for someone to fix your photo for you or do you want some help and suggestions for doing it yourself?

Well I used the liguify folder too after I adjusted the dark foreground with Image adjustments shadow highlights. In a few spots I selected a small area and copied that to a new layer and used the move tool to nudge the copied area toward the midline.

I used curves with a mask to lighten the image.

As I could not get the liquify filter to give me what I wanted, I played with the shadows and created more shadow around the stomach area with sharper shadow margins.

I think the "Pucker" tool in the liquefy filter is the key.

I made three selections and copied them to new layers. Used the nudge tool to move them to the center. I think reducing the stomach requires that the thighs be reduced also. Then minor cleanup.

Re: Big Help - Slim Stomach

Thought I'd give it a try since I haven't done anything like this before.
I just cloned in a little on each side.

Re: Big Help - Slim Stomach

I approached it with redesigned clothing, to some extent. Although I thinned her out some I think this clothing approach leaves more to the imagination exactly what her weight is. I think everything could be corrected by shadowing alone but I’m just not that good at shadows.

I used curves too.

BTW, we have two people holding a camera being photographed by a third.

And the toes at the far left corner... I bet he/she also has a camera.
