4 Lose your weight in 30min!

This tutorial you will learn to trim you body weight within the few steps by using the LIQUIFY tool in PHOTOSHOP. The Liquify filter may be one of the most commonly used filters in Photoshop’s arsenal. The Liquify filter allows us to distort the pixels in a given image without losing quality. Some designers are a bit intimidated by the Liquify filter, others may use in improperly. Today, we will explain the features of this very powerful filter in detail so you can use it in your work.

Start off with the image that you are going to be working on to trim off a few grams or pounds’.

Drag the background layer to the new layer icon to duplicate the layer so you have some pixels that you can ‘work on’ safely.

Now go to Filter: Liquify.

Use the zoom tool if necessary to zoom in to the area that you are going to work on.

Now grab the Freeze Mask tool and go ahead and paint to freeze the areas that are around the area that you are going to work on. Freezing anything (in red) will not allow those pixels to be liquefied. This is a great tool so you can get more accurate and precision weight-loss areas.

Here I’m not focusing on this neck first but rather covering up and freezing the entire areas surrounding the small edge of each face/chinside as shown. This will allow me to only work on these specific areas.

Now grab the Shift Pixels tool. Use the bracket keys to get just the right brush size, making sure it’s not bigger than the area that you have already freezemasked.

Now with your Shift Pixels tool you’re going to carefully nudge/nip the edge of the face in. This is digital surgery at it’s fastest.

Now repeat the same process for the other side, carefully clicking and dragging it slightly in.
