The Pinch filter squeezes the contents of an image towards the center, or pushes it out toward its outer edges. The only control available is an Amount slider, which can be varied from 0 to 100 percent (to pinch inward) or from 0 to 100 percent (to push outward).

Figure 8.33 shows an entire image that has been pinched by 50 percent. However, if you're pinching a rectangularly shaped selection, the filter automatically blends the affected area into the surrounding image. That's because Photoshop applies the filter to the largest ellipse that will fit inside the square or rectangle. The effect is feathered into the rest of the selection, providing a smooth transition.
