Digital Nip Tuck
Photoshop is probably the cheapest alternative to plastic surgery possible. Unfortunately, Photoshop is only helpful in computer land. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to do your own plastic surgery with a nose job to up and coming MTV starlet, Ashlee Simpson.
This is a quick and easy way to reduce the size of body parts. In this example we will reduce the size of this girl’s nose.
First step, select the Lasso Tool [L]. In the Options Bar, set the feather to something like 10px. Quick tip: Pressing the Enter key (next to your number pad) quickly selects the Feather Box in your Options Bar. Draw a wide selection around the area you want to modify. In this case, it’s Ashlee Simpson’s nose country.
Go up to Filter>Liquify [Ctrl + Shift + X].
The Liquify dialog box will open, and you will see your selection with the Quick Mask red around it. Now you can select the Pucker Tool [S]. Use the tool right at the inside edge of the area you want to shrink. It changes pretty quickly. If it’s too much, lower the Brush Pressure in the Tool Options to your right.
Once you get your desired reduction, press OK.
As you can see, it was a very simple process for very dramatic effects. Now she’s a little easier on the eyes.
