You might try the filter: distort / liquify.
Sometimes, the 'pinch' or 'spherize' options in the distort filter may help you to enlarge / reduce a part of a person (nose...)
Note that they act on the center of the image. If the part you want to alter is not in the center of the image, increase the canvas size and crop so that the target part is in the center. You'll crop the unwanted canvas parts afterwards.
Thanks very much. Yep, I love liquify for things like lengthing a tooth of a kid, or even a fingernail on an otherwise perfect set of nails. I tried your ideas, but I think my issue is a bit, um, bigger than that. But I'm sure I'll have use for those options at some point. Thanks again, kind of you to reply.
Thanks Barbara. I tried your idea as well. It worked quite well until I got to the area where the upper thighs meet, then it was a mess, like this bit of skin was pushed into a little mound. (the photo is me in a swimsuit, I get to be mean, haha) Maybe I just need to keep at it and I'll get it right.
Thank you, thank you !
If you attached a photo via email, you can't do it that way. Adobe requires you to come to the forum web page and use the camera icon above the message composition area to post images.
Usually you're going to need a combination of techniques to get a really good result (despite all those internet videos where it's just a click to radically reshape someone). Perhaps working on a duplicate layer then erasing the pileup, or a little cloning would fix the spot--hard to say without seeing it.
