When it comes to editing photos there are many different directions you can take. There are those serious photo edits, like white balance tweaks and sharpening. Then there are those edits that are just for the fun of it, like this.

Here, we’ll look at how to transform a portrait by tweaking features, enlarging eyes and reshaping the face to form a humorous caricature.

Affinity Photo’s Liquify Persona offers the tools we need for this. It enables us to push, pull, expand, contract and reshape pixels in almost any way we like. Whether you need to make a subtle adjustment to the shape of a person or object, or you want to completely transform a portrait like this, the Liquify Persona is the tool for the job.
