Drastic changes often end up looking very unnatural, and can ruin an otherwise beautiful portrait. You can open the Liquify Filter dialog by clicking on the Filter menu and selecting the Liquify option.

Photoshop is an amazing tool that can take any photo and change it into anything you can imagine. While it can take years of practice to alter reality like a pro, there are a few simple tricks you can employ to reshape the world captured in your photos.
