One of the most valuable tools in the Adobe Photoshop arsenal is the "Liquify" function. Found under "Filters," this tool lets users distort and morph images. This is useful when the user wants to retouch and image to remove unwanted features such as a double chin or bags under the eyes. However, if you do not have Photoshop and use the freeware application GIMP instead, you may wonder how you can do something similar since GIMP has no tool or function labelled "Liquify." Fortunately, you can still create morphs using the "iWarp" function.

  1. 1

    Load an image that you would like to create a morph for onto your computer.

  2. 2

    Open GIMP. Select "File" from the menu, and then choose "Open." In the dialogue box that appears, locate the image you loaded in Step 1 and open it.

  3. 3

    Select "Filter" from the menu followed by "Distorts." From the options, choose "iWarp." The iWarp dialogue will open.

  4. 4

    Choose the morph you want to perform, such as "Move," "Grow" or "Shrink." Use the sliders below the morph to adjust the "Radius" of the brush and its "Amount" (strength).
