Hi there, when I convert an image to a smart object liquify becomes greyed out (along with some other filters) Im using the subscription version of photoshop CS6 so the software is up to date. Im working on a quad core mac pro with a ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card. Thanks.

    Right.  You can't run Liquify on a Smart Object. You can open the SO (Layer>Smart Object>Edit Contents) and have access to Liquify. But it will alter the contents of the SO. So if you are worried about preserving the SO, make a copy of it.

    Liquify (and Blur Gallery) as Smart Filter is supposed to be enabled in the current Cloud version which is 13.1.2.


    speckelectric, do you definitely have only the Smart Object targeted and does 'Photoshop > About Photoshop' definitely say 13.1.2?
