Retouching A Facial Expression in Photoshop Fix

This week, on-hand Photoshop Guru Eric Renno, from tutorial site Tip Squirrel demonstrates new Adobe mobile app Photoshop Fix. 

Adobe have released a host of mobile apps of late, one of them being Photoshop Fix. I’m sure we’ll explore more of this great app in the future but in this post we’ll take a look at how we can retouch a facial expression in minutes.

For this post I’m using this image:

Portrait of a beautiful woman

Loading the Image

Download the Photoshop Fix app from the iTunes store then tap it to open.

Click the + on the left to open the options for selecting an image:

As you can see, there’s lots of choices here. The image I want is in the Creative Cloud storage so I’ll navigate there:

Liquify

There’s a lot of tools here but the one we’re after is the Liquify tool:

There’s a subsection of tools here also, Warp, Swell and Twirl work the same as Push, Bloat and Twirl in Photoshop. What we’re after is Face, at the right hand end.

Face

When Face is active Photoshop Fix will identify key parts of the face, eyes, cheeks, nose, mouth and chin. Each one of these has a pin associated with it and can be adjusted independently of the others.

Let’s make our model pouty and sultry….

Eyes

Clicking on one of the pins on the eyes reveals the control for the eyes. First I’ll tap Height:

And then use the slider to reduce the hight of the eyes;

Next I’ll alter the Tilt:

Next I’ll tap the Mouth Pin and I’ll take the upper lip up, lower lip down and then the width down to make the mouth smaller:

Click the tick to accept the changes:
