Is there some sort of tool in PS or PSE that will make people look a little thinner or fatter? Seems like a desirable feature.:) Also seems like you could get away with it without affecting other objects in the photo too much, as long as you didn't get carried away with it.

Thanks

Play with "liquify" under effects/filters


First step........ Take the lens cap off.

Boy, that's tough to control! It'll change the subject but also plays real havoc with the surroundings!

Heh! Yeah, that's a tool I rarely touch -- it would be worth your time to check out some video tutorials on its use -- I've seen YouTube demos and it blows your mind but these are just quick examples by people who obviously know what they are doing. As it is, I'm more the type to just try to get a nice photo of someone "as is"...:)!

Well, I wouldn't exactly call this useful, but it's entertaining!

Try displacement maps. You could apply the displacement to a duplicate of the image and then mask in the effect so that only the subject is affected.

You have to use liquify in a very subtle way. But it can be a very useful tool.

You need to be careful with the liquify filter, the results can be scary. Some time back I was feeling down and trapped and started playing with the filter and ended up with a self portrait that kinda put me in in a very unpleasant place.

I'll look for it but it may be gone! I'm not even sure I saved a layered TIF/PSD of this one.
