Lesson Info

Photoshop: Liquify Tool

Now we're gonna turn our attention over to the dress. We're gonna go up to the filter menu and in the filter menu, you're gonna go to liquefy. Liquefy is an incredible tool. So once we're in the liquefy dialogue box, we can zoom in again to that area. I'm just gonna zoom in. There, that's good enough. And we're gonna use several different tools inside of the liquefy. We have to prepare to warp this cloth downward. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna freeze it. So you go to the freeze mask tool right here and we're going to freeze all of this stuff. So we don't want to move any of this. From here all the way to here. We don't want to move the box itself. And you don't have to be super accurate but you do want to be pretty accurate about it. So just try your best but you don't have to zoom in too far to do this. And I'm just gonna follow the edge of that slip like that. I don't want to move any of that stuff so I'm holding it. Everything that's red is frozen. It can't move. This backgr...

ound here won't matter if it's moving or not because it's so blurry. So now I'm gonna go up to the warping tool, so the very top, and I'm just gonna start moving it down. But remember, I need it to fairly big so that it's moving big pieces of cloth instead of small pieces of cloth. And I'm just going to grab it and I'm just gonna drag it down. Look what I'm doing. I'm just extending that dress down. And the great thing is is that as soon as it hits that frozen area, it's gonna be stuck. Hold on. And we can always use the Z, command Z, to go back 'cause I went a little too far. There we go. Keep going. Got it. Now I can make this brush smaller as I get down to the nitty gritty. I can just start dragging down this part here, this part. There. Alright? I like the way that looks. I'm gonna hit OK. And now you can see that if we zoom back out, now it's just lace and a little white line which is perfect for us. So it looks a lot better than seeing that little triangle of white down there.
