Liquify Tools

The Liquify tools can be used in isolation or combination to allow you to warp an image as appropriate.

The Liquify tools available include:

Liquify Push Forward Tool Push Forward Tool

Shifts pixels in the direction of the stroke.

Liquify Push Left Tool Push Left Tool*

Shifts pixels 90° to the left of the stroke direction. This spreads and compresses edges along the stroke.

Liquify Twirl Tool Twirl Tool*

Applies a clockwise rotational distortion under the stroke (centred around the middle of the tool cursor). If the tool is used in one area multiple times, the strength of the distortion increases.

Liquify Pinch Tool Pinch Tool*

Applies a concave spherical distortion under the stroke. If the tool is used in one area multiple times, the strength of the distortion increases.

Liquify Turbulence Tool Turbulence Tool

Applies a crumbling distortion under the stroke which compacts some mesh lines together while expanding others. If the tool is used in one area multiple times, the strength of the distortion increases.

Liquify Mesh Clone Tool Mesh Clone Tool

Paints samples from one part of the mesh onto another. Ideal for applying previously set mesh adjustments to another area of the image. (-click sets the sample area.)

Liquify Reconstruct Tool Reconstruct Tool

Reduces the warp effect applied to an image using the above tools. If the tool is used in one area multiple times, the strength of the underlying effect decreases. With the appropriate number of applications, the area will return to its original, unwarped state.

Liquify Freeze Tool Freeze Tool

Protects areas of the image from any warp effects by applying a mask.

Liquify Thaw Tool Thaw Tool

Allows areas of the image to be warped by removing the current mask.

Settings

Tool settings can be adjusted using the Brush panel.
