To distort an image:

1 Select the layer you want to distort. To change only part of the current layer, select that area.

2 Choose Filter > Liquify.

Note: If a type layer, or a shape layer is selected, you must rasterize the layer before proceeding, making the type or shape uneditable. To distort type without rasterizing the type layer, use the Warp options for the type tool.

3 Freeze areas of the image that you don't want to alter. (See "Freezing and thawing areas" on page 196.)

4 In the Tool Options section of the dialog box, do the following:

• Specify a brush size and brush pressure. Using a low brush pressure makes changes occur more slowly, so it's easier to stop them at exactly the right moment.

• Specify a Turbulent Jitter to control how tightly the turbulence tool scrambles pixels.

• (Photoshop) Select Stylus Pressure to use pressure readings from a stylus tablet. (This option is available only when you are working with a stylus tablet.) When Stylus Pressure is selected, the brush pressure for the tools is the stylus pressure multiplied by the Brush Pressure value.
