RE: liquify type tool in Gimp?
No good quoting PS functions here Wink I had to go and look up what the pesky thing does

"The Liquify filter lets you push, pull, rotate, reflect, pucker, and bloat any area of an image."

Probably the closest in Gimp is the iwarp filter in Filters -> Deform

You can use it on the whole image but sometimes it is worth making a selection first.

oop, yes I should have said what the plugin from that other program does Smile
I did have a quick look at that tool but thought maybe there is something better. However I had not made a selection first so that would probably work out a lot better.

There are other tools, the cage tool might do what you need. Not the most useful of Gimp tools, often need subsequent tidying up.

If you can move to linux, there is a great non-gimp tool fotoxx which deforms areas the way Gimp should

Hi, I just tried that plugin again - it was better with a selection made but I still dont like the way the selection only takes up quarter of the window the rest is useless black. I cant see a way to increase the size to see better. Still it's not bad.
I am on linux 100% so will google fotoxx.
Edit, got fotoxx thanks will have a little play with it.

Or if you want to stay in windows, there are quite a few photo warping freewares on this site linked at the end of my post.

The one I tested a nice little program deformerPro, its portable so no need to install, just takes a couple seconds to load up.

http://deformer-pro.software.informer.com/

When you open an image, it will give you info, the latice is the grid you see. You can disable it from the toolbar.

Also after your done with the image and want to save, first click the "F" to finalize your morph when done.

Then I recommend you save it in .PNG or .BMP in the "save as..." and further edit/touch it up in gimp after Smile

Here are some other ones that are listed
(make sure you don't install the si installer, it should have the name of the program you want)
