Face Aware Liquify in photoshop, change a face to look like someone else

If you are like most people, you have probably had some real fun with the liquify tool. It’s actually a very useful tool when it comes to retouching. The Liquify in photoshop can be used as a subtle tool to push pixels around like no other tool in Photoshop. It has also been abused a few times and been the cause of many “photoshop fail” type posts, usually by those who are just hungry for cheap clicks online. In Photoshop CC 2015.5, we see a brand new addition to the liquify tool. This enables us to isolate different parts of a face and then alter it with just a few moves of a slider. You can even create presets. This quick video will show you how to use the face aware liquify tool to change the appearance of this woman’s face. You can literally mimic features of other people, even celebrities. It won’t look exactly like the other person because there are other features at play, such as cheekbone shape, eye brows, eye color, cheek shape, type of nose, hair, skin texture and other unique qualities. However, this tool is enough to get a “Hey, has anyone told you, you look like…” Creepy? Cool? Useful? Check out the video and add a comment below and tell us your thoughts.

Face Aware Liquify in Photoshop CC 2015.5

Face Aware Liquify, takes the Liquify tool in photoshop to a new level. Instead of pushing pixels across the screen, this tool actually detects faces. It can detect a single face, or multiple faces in an image. It detects and allows you to adjust these perts:

  • Eyes: Width, height, size, distance apart and angle (this last one is crazy). Both eyes change together as a group
  • Nose: Width and Height, height moves it closer or further away from the mouth.
  • Mouth: Width, height and smile. Yup, you can make people smile. All babies are now happy babies.
  • Jaw: Make it wide or narrow, long or short
  • Face width: Make it thinner or more rounded

This can actually be a useful retouching tool if used in a subtle way. You can also go nuts and create caricatures of people with it. One thing for sure, it’s fun.

It also works on a smart object. This means that you can apply it to a video, which is how I made the silly part in my intro in the video above.

New Select and Mask Space for cutting things out. This replaces the refine edge, which was good, but weak on fine edges such as hair. See Select Mask in action (In-depth video tutorial) and more info here.

  1. Very extraordinary photo manipulations, cool style! I wanted to retouch in this genre, but image manipulations are not my strong points. I send my works to online photo retouching services like FixThePhoto or HighEndBeautyRetouching if I need
