If you are a Photoshop Creative Cloud user, you already know that Adobe rolled out a new version of Photoshop CC yesterday 06/21/16. Along with the version are several new features. I want to show one called Face Aware Liquify. If you ever used the mobile app Photoshop Fix you may have seen an earlier version of this filter. Quite simply put, Face Aware Liquify lets you change the shape of a persons face.
Now I realize some will say that this is taking Photoshop too far, and that is a discussion better left to another Blog piece.
I want to show how this filter works.
So, Lets start with an Infrared image of person.
Here we go.
Now before I go any further, I want to clarify something. I don’t think this person needs anything changed on their face. This is just to demonstrate how this filter works.
Now lets select Filter, and Liquify.
Now, you will notice that this filter has changed slightly.
To the left hand side there is an icon in the shape of a face.
Once you click on it, you will notice some outline shapes appear on the face of the image you are using. Photoshop has identified the key features of the persons face.
Here’s the outline of the face, and if you hover over other parts of the face, you’ll similar lines for the eyes, nose, and mouth
Now is when it starts to get interesting, … or weird depending on your point of view.
Each control area of the face has sliders to do precise adjustments
Now, lets see some examples of what you can do.
Like I said, interesting or weird, depending on your perspective. It does have some potential if you need to reshape a face.
So, what do you think? Will you use the Face Aware Liquify?
Leave me your thoughts.
. . . . and Rebecca, I think you look great just as you are.
