The Liquify tool crashes if the GPU is turned on. It works if the GPU is disabled, however, the eye tool won't work if the GPU is disabled.

Also, if the GPU is disabled, the fill function will freeze the program and it won't respond.

A couple of things you could try...

  1. Reset the Photoshop Preferences. Look for the Reset Preferences On Quit button within the General tab of the Photoshop Preferences.
  2. Turn off the Legacy Compositing feature within the Performance tab of the Photoshop Preferences.

Unfortunately none of these two steps helped. Keeps crashing. Had to revert to old version.

Which old version are you using?

I was using 22.1, and recently have downgraded to 22.0, fixed one problem (couldn't save the file), but this liquify problem still haven't been solved yet....

Still did not work. If we (the client) are paying a monthy/yearly sub fees. Please test your patchs or updates BEFORE releacing them. Don't exspect us to be your test dummies. If this is going to be the Norm. Then I exspect a refund for as long as this patch keeps crashing seeing its costing me money.

PS, yes my english is off. English is not my best side!

Try Holding down Alt (Opt Mac) and clicking the Liquify filter. Does it work now?

Now it works again. PS updated, Nvidia updated... A bit weird that PS depends on specific NVIDIA driver settings.

Not weird at all when you consider how GPU heavy processing images in PS can be.

Totally Agree!
I swear to god, one of the worst software experiences I ever had and one of the worst customer support.
Photoshop just keeps getting worse, slower, and glitchy, it even struggles with the most updated Hardware chips!!
I am 3D Artist, I usually work on massive 3D scenes with tons of Meshes and Elements and I never struggled with 3D software like how Photoshop deals with 2D Photos 🙂

I work as a concept artist that uses heacy 3D blender scenes and photoshop still causes me more problems. Have the exact same issue and im having to do some really annoying workaround just to liquify something that should take milliseconds.
