P: Ability to Liquify on mobile

It may not be feasible (at least for now) to add Liquify to Photoshop on the iPad, but how about Transform> Warp as a workaround?  (Being able to manipulate an image using Liquify — or Warp — is a basic image editing feature.)

EDIT #2: on Aug 1, 2023, Adobe announced that Liquify is available on mobile.

Liquify is not available on Photoshop for iPad — only for Photoshop (for desktop). It is listed in the "What's Coming" section, so we know the developers are working on it.

I am running the latest version of Photoshop iPad. For some reason, I do not have the Liquify Filter. Why is that?

Hi! Mine still says it's not available. I have a new iPad air, so you know how I can get it? I see the tool but it's greyed out.

 

 

[Note from moderator: this post was merged with an primary thread

asking when Liquify would be available. This is a different question.]

Hello, I have a new ipad and I just downloaded photoshop but my liquefy tool is greyed out. I saw that there was an update and that iPads should now be able to edit with the liquefy tool, but I can't seem to figure out how to add it. Could anyone help?

 

 

[Subject edited by moderator to say "Liquify tool greyed out". Was "Liquefy tool".

Liquify was not available for iPad at first. It is now available. Make sure you have the latest version.

Check to see what version you have using the cog in the upper right. Update in the App Store if needed. Then look in Filters in the right hand panel.

Are you the same person with two logins or two people?

 

Yes, Liquify is available on iPad now.

janee_0-1691345746988.png

 

Select a layer first, as Liquify will be grayed out if you don't.

Then tap Filters and Adjustments > Liquify.

If you don't see Liquify at all, click the cog in the upper right and tell us your version.

Show a screenshot of your Layers panel. You may not be on the right kind of layer.

What can you tell us about the selected layer? Is it just gray lines or something else? If you unclip it, can you use Liquify?

janee_0-1691346626205.png 

 

 

It's something with that layer. Can you try another layer or image to let us know if Liquify works at all? If it does, we'll move on to why doesn't it work on this layer.
