  • How to "Smart Liquify"?

    Hello, everyone!

    I research a lot before creating this topic, does anyone know how to use this technique?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW0ehGHi9Vs

    It's included on Conny Wallström's Retouching Toolkit as "Smart Liquify". I'm really curious how he achives it.

    Is it possible to convert layers to Smart Objects, and update the Liquify file with adjustments made after it was created?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's a new feature in Photoshop CC. You can't "smart liquify" in earlier versions (like CS6).

      I guess it's not a feature, it's an add on developed by Conny Wallstrom. I would like to know if anyone can explaing the "thought behind it".

        It is a feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUe1s1vV0xs

        The thought behind it is that after using the liquify filter, you can reopen it and make further adjustments. It's the same idea of all smart filters: It allows nondestructive edits.

          I'm sorry, I have to disagree… the Conny Wallstrom add on (now avaiable in the Retouching Toolkit) gives you the possibility of making adjustments in the layers bellow and update the liquify Smart Object after. Please watch this video carefuly: https://youtu.be/-yKDUBfDkx8?t=5m42s

            Thanks, but I don't need to watch your video. Smart liquify IS a new feature in Photoshop CC. I am well aware that Conny Wallstrom created some add on that expands smart liquify, and good for Conny. But the fact is that smart liquify WAS a Photoshop feature before Conny got into the act. And I'm really not interested in debating this issue with you.

              I just can't find a way to use the a "Smart Liquify" featured in Photoshop CC. The video you shared only showcase how to use the Liquify and Blur with Smart Objects, which I already know. Can you please explain me how to use in the way I explained? I tried everything and nothing seems to work. Thank you.

                Shear
                by ksparticus
                I was wondering if in PS Filter/Distort/Shear there was a way to adjust the shear to the horizontal axis? I know I can rotate my selection prior then use the shear but just as a matter of convenience.

                Thanks...

                Anyone has problems processing a 12.2 mp 16bpc picture with the liquify tool? I'm wondering WHY Photoshop doesn't use all the cpu cores when processing the tasks in liquify, just 1 core is in use...

                Liquify
                by Big Mike
                I have started to experiment with liquify but I'm having a problem.

                I get started in the liquify dialog window and I'll apply some effects but after just a few tweaks, an error box pops up and says "No more virtual tiles can be allocated". The error repeats again if I try anything...

                Question about smart objects and filters
                by mashny
                Hi:

                I've been using Photoshop CS3 for a few months and am having a problem with it: when I use filters in smart objects, the settings I use in my filters don't show in the picture unless I have the filter open. When I close it it's as if I hadn't applied any filters.

                ...

                LIQUIFY - Photoshop CC Face-Aware

                Anybody have any familiarity with this? I just used this and realized that they added this inane function to their arsenal.

                I don't like it - it appears to be for novices and and tries to make retouching easier for folks who maybe shouldn't be retouching - JMO.

                In any event,...
