The Distort Pinch is one command I so much love in Adobe Photoshop. It’s primary objective is to distort objects or images inward or outward. This command can be used on images when a selection of it is selected. It is however important to note that if a part of an object is not selected, it will distort all the images.
The Pinch Command can be used to protrude or compress the cheek in a photography. It can also be used to distort a face in a comical way by selecting a part or the desired portion you want to work on.
The Pinch Command is a filter command under the distort flyout command. It is part of the Distort family that house Displace, Polar Coordinates, Ripples, Twirl and a host of others.
Here in the example, we will be using the image of Barrack Obama, the President of the United States of America, and as well as the image of Nigeria Activist, Playwright and 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature, Wole Soyinka.
All you need to do is to Go to Filter/Distort/Pinch. It’s either you decrease the amount to make the selected portion wide or you increase to make compress the area selected.
From our own little example below is what we were able to achieve with the Distort Pinch Command.
Get hold of an image and try having some fun.
