How to Retouch in Photoshop Using Face Aware in Liquify
Hi there. This video is all about using liquefy to retouch specifically using Photoshop kind of facial recognition just when you thought this man couldn't get any more handsome five head forehead more manly chin. Just drag it out. Everyone looks cute with bigger eyes, look at me, we're going to go from smirk too, approachable smiley man lips as well, definitely nitpicking. Alright, it is that easy. Let's look out and do it in Photoshop. Alright to get started. Let's go to 10 retouching and open up liquefy face aware. One and two. We're gonna start with this handsome devil and we're going to use filter and we're going to use liquefy but we're going to be professionals. So we are going to right click background and say you are a smart object first so we can turn it on and off. Good to compare our adjustments and later on we just turn it off if we go too far and we are going to go so far in this one because it's me, I'm allowed to distort my face as much as I like you are too. I give you ...
full permission. Now, if you open it up, it sometimes jumps to face detect. Anyway if it doesn't go from our forward warp down to this little guy here face tool and somehow magically every time I open an image with a face in it, it seems to just know where the eyes are, the nose are. Like face recognition is pretty amazing where it's just built into Photoshop So cool. So you've got two ways of distorting faces or adjusting. Okay, you can do it generically over here. Okay, there's this little drop down here. It says face away, liquefy or you can do it actually on the actual artwork. Let's do the generic stuff. And you can, let's do eyes first. Let's make sure that, that we don't have to, but let's link them together so that when we adjust one side they both come along, it can be really handy when there's just this like weird perspective, you know who the person's eyes are the same size, but just the angle of the face. The bend in the lens just makes it look a bit weird. So you could go in here, break the link and just move one bigger than the other. Make the other one smaller, looking good dan. Okay, now you can just work your way through these. Right, okay, so I'm just going to link all of these because it's just, it's experimenting. You can stretch the height of the eyes and the width. Okay, separately from just the overall size. You can tilt them, let's say I want to tilt this guy down a little bit. Just need to kind of rotate them around. Can you see wiggle, wiggle something a bit more distance between the eyes if you wish your eyes were just that little bit further apart or a little bit closer. There's a slider for that. Okay, so nose, mouth, they're all adjustable. But what you can do is with this tool selected. You can actually do it on the artwork. You can decide that all of these little dots have a different kind of adjustment. Okay, so you're looking for the little white dots. So nose height. I was with one of my favorites. The lips, I can just hear you go dan look at that. Didn't quite grab my bottom lip, looks like I've been punched. It really depends on how much of the lip you can see. So if you can do it here, you might go in and actually go to the bloke tool. Okay, I'm going to pick a brush size and I'm going to just kind of express my lips manually. There we go. Now if we go back to face recognition, it's probably going to pick up that lip a lot better. These ones are cool. You can give yourself a smile. It's, we're doing it to yourself. I'm smiling. He's smiling. This photo was going for like cool, serious Photoshop trainer. Now, fun approachable Photoshop trainer. It's pretty amazing how it locks in all the different muscles for me. What I really want is I want a nice big chin. Here you go, looking manly. Now I can just keep going and adjusting you get the idea right. So face recognition. Pretty amazing. You can adjust them globally over here or just on the art. Just work array way around and decide what you want to do. The other one to mention is and probably for me the most is my forehead. I've been told I have a five head mainly by my little brother so I can reduce that a little bit. I need to Photoshop in maybe a fringe. My fringe is about halfway down the back of my head. Now anyway, if you go too far, you can click reset. Let's click. Ok? But because we did it on its own smart filter, we can do it on and off. Okay. The only other thing really to share with you is that you can do it for groups of photos, which is pretty amazing. When I say groups of photos. I mean groups of people in photos somehow facial recognition works for lots of people. Okay, same tool. I should have made it a smart object first. But what you can do up here, you can select the different faces. Okay? You can see face just left to right. 1234. So I can pick the fifth person and say you, my friend need big eyes. You my friend need to smile more. Here we go, everybody. He's smiling. He's kind of smiling. She's not smiling enough. Come on, let's go. The one thing I'll do before we go is that say when I'm retouching often kind of main trick is to make the eyes a little bigger. Don't want to go too far. So we've been quite far in this tutorial. Okay, we just yank them up because it's funny, but when you're doing serious, retouching, it's all about the subtleties. People look happier, healthier, prettier when their eyes are just bigger. Okay, so I'm gonna lock these two together. I'm just going to make this guy's eyes. So you end up doing like these tiny subtle adjustments. What you're looking for is this, remember put some boots okay, People look cuter when their eyes are bigger, especially when their pupils are bigger than what we used to do is just grab bloke tool. Okay, a couple of clicks gone a bit far, but you get the idea. I did a lot of work for a swimwear company and they did a lot of men's bathing suits and what the our director wanted was. He wanted guys, but he want them quite feminine. So we ended up messing in with the cheekbones and kind of x, you know, messing with the face to kind of give them a bit more feminine features rather than the one we did with me where we give ourselves a nice big thick draw line. If you ever used liquefy to do this before. It was really hard to do it naturally. Now we've just got sliders. I can't believe how good it is and the trick for us as Photoshop users is how subtle we need to be like, especially if you don't work for, say models kind of portrait ages. You don't want your kind of finished product, not to look like the person, especially messing with the eyes distance of eyes, those types of things. You can end up changing a person that just doesn't look like that person anymore. It's only subtle little adjustments. You know what I'm walking into an interview and people not recognizing them. Hey, this is not in your head shots, but lowering your five head down to a full head. I'm okay with that. Let's go here. He's got a head on. So it's still kind of works. It's pretty amazing. All right. We're going to click OK undo undo. Much more handsome. This man is all right, my friends, that is liquefy using facial recognition. Let's get into the next video where I set a pretty exciting class project.
