Removing Love Handles

This is a very handy body-sculpting technique, and you’ll probably be surprised at how many times you’ll wind up using it. It uses Liquify, which many people first dismissed as a “toy” for giving people “bug-eyes” and “huge lips,” but it didn’t take long for professional retouchers to see how powerful this tool could really be.

Step One.
Open the photo that has a love handle repair just waiting to happen. (In the photo at right, we’re going to remove the small love handle on the right side of the body. I know this is probably the last person in the world that needs a love handle removal, but when you’re looking through stock photos, finding a person that doesn’t have a perfect physique is nearly impossible.)
