I am having issues with the new upgrade to Photoshop CC 2015 on Mac El Captain. The only thing I did was upgrade from a working CC 2015 to the new version. Using the liquify tool give the following look. There is a box around the area liquified that is lighter than the other areas. When I turn of Use Acceleration in Graphics Processor, it is better but .... I didn't have to do this in the prior version i.e.. Yesterday.

New Update: The Squiggly waist is the liquified:

This issue should be solved by the 2015.1.1 update released tonight: https://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/20...

Reverting back to the prior version via the Creative Cloud Tab.

Squiggly line does not show a box around it....

All I did was revert back to the prior version via the Creative Cloud App.

Hi After today's update I can't use a Liquify tool. After making changes on a separate layer a bright square appears in the place where the changes were implemented. Could you please fix it?Thanks

We are now able to reproduce the problem in-house and are working on a fix.

For the time being there are two workarounds:

1. Use 8-bit images instead of 16-bit images with Liquify
2. Disable GPU for Liquify by holding the Option key down as you select the Liquify filter from the filter menu

Thanks,
Adam

8-bit with GPU enabled works. Better choice of the two workarounds for since I rarely used the menus--short cuts short cuts short cuts :)

Thanks!

After updating to Photoshop CC 2015.1 I have noticed a problem with the liquify filter. Turns out, the liquify filter brightens the chunks of the layer that have been liquified.

This is an example image:


And here it is after liquify:

Thanks Adam. Please please, can this one not take months like the last one? It's only been hours since you rolled out the update and it's hard to understand how this one went unnoticed. Please don't wait for the next pack of new features for a fix. These things are urgent, since most professionals simply cannot work in 8bits or without GPU acceleration anymore.

My compromised "workaround" at the moment is not changing my current workflow and continue to send 16-bit images from LR to PS. What I'm doing now is saving liquify to the very end of the workflow and then converting image to 8-bit. Which truthfully is where it normally occurs in my workflow.

That workflow isn't really compatible with working for clients. Normally the layer that gets liquified is on top, with its liquify mesh saved. If the client wants changes, you delete the liquified layer, make the changes you need below, and then create another stamp and apply the liquify mesh.

Now, what I have to do is save the liquify with GPU (annoyed by the disappearing cursor), and then cancel the liquify. Then I have to apply the mesh by using liquify with no GPU acceleration.

I have to do that every time a client asks for changes.

Hi,

I try to liquify something in my picture, but there is as you see in the pic something really wrong. It happens only when I open the raw (cr2) from Lightroom to photoshop. If I open the raw directly via Photoshop there is no problem.
Wtf?
Can you help me?

The difference is probably that you've set up lightroom to process in 16bits but your Camera Raw is rendering in 8 bits. The liquify problem only happens with you liquify 16 bit images.

I wouldn't like to find out after this problem that the liquify filter is converting 16bit images to 8bits and then re-sampling back to 16bit (which is what I'm starting to suspect)... that would be cheating like WV.

I just spoke to the engineer that wrote Liquify and he stated it is 16bit in and 16bit out.

Why all of us should be a free beta-testers of all new releases? I expect, as many other licensed users, a kind of compensation from Adobe for all inconvenience resulted with lots of bugs.
