Maybe you could clarify when you say no options appear, you mean the liquify dialog doesn't appear or some of the options
in the liquify dialog seem to be missing?
What version of photoshop and operating system are you using?
If your using photoshop cs6/cc, clicking Advanced Mode in the liquify dialog will give you the standard dialog as your used to seeing in earlier versions of photoshop.
Yeah! When I checked under Filter> for the other filters like Filter Gallery, I saw another Liquify (not the one at the top). I chose that Liquify and Voila! Then I had my Liquify tools.
You're a genius! Thanks.
That doesn't sound right as photoshop cs6 should only have one Liquify filter under the filter menu at the top.
Was the other Liquify filter under Filter>Distort>Liquify?
Have you pointed the Additional Plug-Ins folder under Photoshop (Edit)Preferences>Plug-Ins in photoshop cs6 to an earlier version
of photoshop or photoshop elements plug-ins folder or copied any plug-ins from an earlier version of photoshop or photoshop elements to the photoshop cs6 Plug-Ins folder?
No, I don 't believe I had added an additional Plug-in but I did start with CS5. There is a shortcut next to the wrong Liquify under the Filter menu at the top - Shift F5, if that means anything. Needless to say, it didn't work as a shortcut to the actual Liquify filter. I had thought it was there because I had previously used the Liquify effect (and had had no problem with it).
Your filter menu in photoshop cs6 should look something like below, plus any third party plugins you may have installed, which are usually at the
very bottom of the filter menu.
Liquify should have a default shortcut of Shift+Ctrl+X (Shift+Cmd+X)
Could you post a screenshot of how your filter menu looks in photoshop cs6?
Maybe also the contents of the Help>Info from within photoshop cs6.
I'll try to attach my SS. I wasn't able to crop it for some reason but it's back to showing Liquify at the top as the Last Filter. I used it to liquify and alter the model's face in this photo I took without any problem when Liquify appeared in the largest group, the 4th I believe. Strange how it moved up to the top.
Sorry but I wasn't able to figure out how to crop my SSfile://localhost/Users/fl/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202013-07-21%20at%2 06.12.59%20PM.png
I'm not sure if this is the right file but, here goes.
The last filter item reapplies the settings of the last filter. It won't show the UI because you already specified the settings.
That's normal - and you're just mistaking the last filter option for the Liquify filter normal position.
