Slim down - tommy and chest

Could you tell me the easiest and quickest way to - slim down tommy and chest please? The width can be narrowed down by Liquify filter, but how can be the height of tommy and chest to push them down? Very difficult to look natural and really flat.

The liquify filter is a great way to shave off pounds. You can also use the shear filter to add a little curve or indent a little curve (good tool to use on waists).

Another good tool is the transform tool. You can use the transform tool to stretch, shrink, add perspective and distort. Select the area you want to change, feather it slightly and place the selection on a new layer (that way you can undo any changes you don't like).

If you post an example I am sure you will get a lot of suggestions.

Adding shading can help too -- but again, easier with an example to work on.

Hi MR,
Welcome to RP. If you have Katrin Eismann book (second edition), you will find in chapter 9, page 285 The Digital Diet and it will take you thru the steps to do the job. If you don't have it, check it out. Most of it is like Leah & T Paul have posted and it will show you what they are talking about
