View Full Version : Problem with Liquify in PS 7
09-07-2003, 10:35 PM
Just recently I opened Photoshop 7 to use liquify, only to discover it seems to be messed up. Problem is, when I open it and smudge stuff around, weird little boxes appear and keep me from seeing the clear image. Here's what it looks like: http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/mr_zaiyen/vwp?.dir=/Yahoo!+Photo+Album&.dnm=Liquify.jpg&.view=t&.done=http%3a//f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/mr_zaiyen/lst%3f%26.dir=/Yahoo!%2bPhoto%2b Album%26.src=ph%26.view=t
(you'll have to copy and paste it all to work)
Does anyone know how to fix this? It's really annoying. It doesn't show up on the image if I hit ok. Also, it goes away if I open another window on top of it, then go back to PS. However, if I move the brush again, it does it again.

Yea that's not normal.. but you knew that. I'd say reinstall photoshop because I use liquify constantly and nothing bad has ever happened with it.

Do the pictures you are currently working on have a large number of layers Zac? If so it may be a video memory issue.
I only ask because I notice similar problems with PSP8 on my Athlon XP 1800 with 512MB ram and a 64MB Geforce 2 Video card, and I believe it is due to the insufficient video memory causing the odd glitch. I usually find things can be returned to normal by hiding and unhiding the a few of the layers, then saving and reopening the picture. Long term, I think I need more ram and a better video card.

See what sort of mood i'm in.. (http://www.localhero.org.uk/journal/)
along the same lines as waht localhero suggested, it might be memory. but not just physical memory space, but the SCRATCH DISKS. i'm nto sure if its the same in PSP and Photoshop, but you can select where you want to temporarily store the HISTORY when you're manipping. if they're full, you wont be able to do anything more on you manip.
i'mnot sure if you guys know this already but i'll give a run down on how to clear the scratch disks (more memory) or to change them in Photoshop.
Edit > Preferences > Plug-Ins & Scratch Disks.
on a Mac, go straight to the Preferences tab.
here you can reassign where you want your work history to be stored.
hope this helps

I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with layers, because that pic that I gave a link to was only one layer. However, I will try the scratch disk thing. Thanks guys.
