I'ts been awhile since I've entered and I can't remember.

Can you use liquefy to shave a few pounds off of a model in advanced editing? Assuming it only effects them and no background elements.

I'm just looking through 2012 and deciding whether I need to re edit an image or not as I think I remember doing it.

Specifically giving a digital tummy tuck lol.

I've done some reading in past forums and it seems to be an OK thing to do as long as its nothing major.

A very minor change should pass muster. The question is, how much is too much? the rule you want to avoid falling afoul of is:

You may not:
- use distortions to create new effects or radically alter objects.


If you are unsure, submit DPC-sized before/after comparison shots to the SC for approval/disapproval prior to the challenge.

There's no way to make a blanket statement that a particular tool, e.g. the Portrait professional face Warp would or would not be legal. In any case where you are modifying an object, I'd be very careful, because the rules tend to be interpreted, well, let's just say "strictly." So if there is any doubt, submit it for review before the challenge.
But no, there is no prohibition of a (very) minor modification of an object's shape.

You can do it if there's no evident difference.

I'm not that thin :)
