    Liquify is greyed out when using a smart object

    speckelectric

      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?

              Hi Conroy, I just got it sorted using the adobe customer service. Photoshop wouldn't actually let me update to 13.1.2 so I did wonder if that was the cause.  In the end Adobe had to take over my computer (scary) uninstall photoshop and download it again, I was able to get the updates then and all seems to be working ok now, I can get liquify and the three blur filters that were greyed out. Thanks for getting back to me.

              Cheers Robert
