  • ng says:

    The narrator seems to mumble through some of the important aspects of this tutorial. Enunciate please and speak up!

  • ES says:

    BUT what is starting resolution AND the intended OUTPUT RESOLUTION????????? You don’t view any of your liquify transformations at 100% and if it’s a small file you won’t see the smearing and interpolation that Liquefy is going to do to the transformed info. MAYBE great for a tiny file to be used on the web, but that technique just TOO Quick & Sloppy for any type HIGH RES OUTPUT. PLEASE STOP these low end, low tech, sloppy tutorials or tell us what the intended output is going to be. Is it for the web, a small brochure image, a high res high dpi print job large size print job? What is the intended output? THEN design your tutorial to meet THAT output, as one size Tutorials do not meet all jobs.

  • Nizar Ben Slama says:

    Awsome man, I’m simply “wow” for a starter like me I find what you just fascinating thmbs up !

  • Norman Hines says:

    What does “tap the key-key” mean?
    What is he filling up to the top?
    Slow down! Enunciate! I don’t understand what’s happening or what he’s saying!

  • Amanda says:

    Tap the “Q” key.

    I got that far, and the mask works fine, but when I hit CNTRL-J, the new layer becomes the entire picture, instead of just the mask. Any suggestions?
