Hey

Is that a way to "Loose some weight" in a photo? Is that a filter or a method that I can use to slim up my images??

Thank u

You can try using the Liquify filter to squeeze in the wider areas. Some strategic airbrushing and erasing too would help.

airbrushing and general painting is going to be your best bet without question.

Grab the lasso, and select about half of a wider area. Then just use the arrows to shift it over where you need.

You want to use the clone tool to retouch that area (you dont want any visible seams) and to replace the background where the original selection was made.

You may also want to use the clone tool to straighten out any edges, because pushing in part of a wide area will still leave you with somewhat curvy/uneven edges.

that after pic makes his jawline a little pronounced i think. why dont you just resize the whole pic to get a whole body trim? if you want just a little thin-out, not like a PS liposuction, resize the width to about 98-96%. thats just enough to thin the person out witout making it look all distorted(if the backgrounds not too busy) . i hear 98% is the 'magic" resize amount alotta ppl use with models.
