Tutorial: Using Liquify in Photoshop to Correct Jagged Edges

Hello all! This is a quick tutorial to fix some of those sharp edges on the Sim body that often happens when taking poses.

I wanted to make a quick tut (and assumes you know how to use PS) to show how I got these jagged edges on Parminder look smooth for her cover. My tut is very very basic. I’m not going over the other methods I used to edit Parminder’s pics at this time, but I will make a tut in the future.

 

GO FROM THIS

TO THIS

Open your file in PS.

First, make a duplicate of your background layer. Hide it.

Go to Filter-Liquify

This box will open. You can see your brush presets. Here is where you would adjust the setting according to your liking.

Position your brush near the point you want to correct. Pull the mouse in towards the Sim body.

Same process for the knees

Same process for the shoulder. Depending on what part I am wanting to correct, I adjust my brush size accordingly.

Not perfect, but this was a rush job, not the pic I used for the cover. You can see the gist of what I’m doing here. Her pointy shoulder is now more round.

Bottom line, mess around with the brush size to your liking, change whatever you don’t like. Practice makes perfect. Happy Simming!

Quick and Dirty Cut Out Tut in GIMP

This is a simple quick tut on cutting out Sims in GIMP. This is not how I prefer to cut out my Sims. I prefer Photoshop and I prefer to pose my Sims against a chroma green screen. The pen tool in PS or the path tool in GIMP is best for a clean cut out, especially if your Sim is not on a solid background. PS has more tools to help get random unwanted colors out as well. I have not cut out a Sim in GIMP in a long time, but this is just a quick tool because GIMP is free and cool and has some useful features. I will make a longer tut for cutting out Sims with the pen and path tools for PS and GIMP in the future. Happy Simming.

No system in full proof. It’s always best to know what exactly you’re downloading and if your mods conflict with other mods by reading what the creator wrote in their description. The mod conflict program will not tell you which mods conflict. Don’t load a lot of new cc and mods in at once. In case you have issues, it is easier to find the culprit through a process of elimination. I write a better longer tut on how to look for bad cc in the future, but this is just a quick PSA.
