Ctrl and Alt on my Ps only selects the move tool with copy layer option so when I hold Ctrl and Alt and drag to resize brush, it turns into a move tool and creates a copy of the existing layer.

Thanks sir
Awesome Boss

If shift-control-E does not work, go to Layer-Merge Visible and hold down the ALT key while doing that. This may be helpful to some users.

How can you add a object like someone holding a can in photoshop
I really like your tutorials, they're enjoyable to follow! :))))

When I click shift + ctrl + c I just get an window for choosing a layer.

sorry, what's the name of that photography book again?

Aaron, I have a quick thought/suggestion for you or others who may be helped by this comment. However, I am not a photographer or photoshop user (though I would love to be if had the time and startup cash). You are the professional whose work and teaching I highly respect.  Please advise me as appropriate.  Anyway, here goes... Why not just freeze mask the perimeter of the layer before doing any warping, just in case.  An action could probably even be recorded to do this automatically.  Just a thought.  Please let me know what you think.

Anybody else trying to navigate the photo like you're in photoshop but remember you're just watching a video???
Christine Waters
Love it.
Christopher Denny
im just starting with photoshop and digital art but just from this episode, if you would have done the mask you shown before you could have selected to not effect her leg, hand, backround, etc..? would that have avoided the situation you ran into..?
No matter what the topic, I enjoy watching all of the videos.  Aaron is a very personable person with great presentation skills.  Also, for those that say he goes too fast...  my opinion is that it is better to have a short video that you can pause to keep up with than have one where you have to wait for the presenter to move with your skill level.
Dan Maynard
My favorite part is how much Aaron laughs at his own fails. You're a crack up mate. Also the tutorials are the bees knees. 
David Cardoza
I love Phlearn, Aaron and your tutorials. I am new to Photography and Photoshop, and Aaron makes it exciting. I love your excitement and passion, definitely makes learning fun...Thank you for everything you do.
David Jones
Great stuff Aaron. Been working with you for over a year now and come on a long way thanks for all the help in the tutorials. Feel like a know you in person. Keep up the good work.
Dennis Bernaers
Hello Aaron, have you done a video on using the liquify tool to reshape faces? For example to turn an adult face into a child charicature - or is this more PRO level material
Dennis Tate
For that gap down by her leg when you tightened her sleeve, why didn't you use liquify to close the gap, either by reconstruction or warping it back to the edge? Your solution left her with a patch of mottled skin that lacked its original texture and looked a bit like a scar.
If it weren't for you Aaron there would be a ton of PS features that would go undocumented or remain poorly explained for years. I've been hunting for an updated indepth demonstration of liquefy. There are some body mods for my shots that need doing and can't be done convincingly any other way (I don't condone body mods BTW but when model makes that harsh crease in their torso or sides, it's gotta be fixed in post sometimes.)
Elizabeth Simons
Why is it that when I open liquify, I don’t have all the same tools/sliders/buttons?

Photoshop just creeps me out :s

Hi Aaron, at 9'57'' you say you don't find the twirl tool very useful. Well, I found a good use for it. When you do reflections, you flip the image vertically, position it, and decrease the opacity. When you do reflections in water you can use this twirl tool to deform the image and it will make the effect more realistic.

Thar freeze mask changed my life
Thanks Aaron, People have started liking my photos.

Hey one useful tutorial would be for controlling total ink density, in the UK in publishing designers are not given the printer profiles at all, and a job will often be sent back with the command the ink density needs to be under 300%! I found a way to control this with a profile I found with cs6 only something in Photoshop CC has changed and this no longer works, but this can be a real problem for designers here :(

Hello, I'm having trouble with my liquify tool. The Forward Warp Tool won't let me change the rate. Size, density, and pressure work fine, it's just the Rate that isn't letting me do anything. Do you know what could be causing that? Or if there's different settings I should have? I have Photoshop CC 2015. Thank you.

Are you using a mouse or a tablet?
Help, the liquify tool appears as a black cross and it moves the entire picture
Liam Squirrell
All your videos have helped me so much. i have recently started using it and it the most amazing piece of software by far. i never thought how much it could be used for but now i use it all the time and use it to create backgrounds for my website. I learn more and more each day from your videos and hope they keep on coming. Plearn Rules!

Aaron, could you have used the freeze mask tool to protect the edge of the area that got moved when you applied the liquify tool?

this guy is hany and all but he talks too much nad does not get to the point which everyone wants which is how to use LIQUIFY not how to change colours
I was wondering if you guys could do some of these videos :) ---\n\nMake t-shirts have long sleeves\nMake someone taller (Maybe adding high heels?)\nFix cooked teeth\nMake a classic iPod image (one of those silhouettes with the white cable)\nAdd or remove sweat\nI know this last one was mentioned before in a video however I'd love to use it - Add a tattoo using clip art (adding a tattoo that isn't on a person) I know you said the best way to add a tattoo is to take an image of a real tattoo. However I was wondering if there was a way to take any clip art and turn it into a tattoo.\n\nThanks so much for the videos and keep up the great work. You guys are the best!! (I've learned so much)

A faster way to recreate her leg is to use a warp tool. Simply select the problem area and Control+J to make a copy of it. Now use the Warp tool and manipulate.

take less speed and talk slower.

This video was fantastic! Thank you SO much! I use the liquify tool, but I definitely learned how to use the different controls within it. I am a huge fan of your videos. Best photoshop tutorials on the web. :)
Vince Solomito
very well done. thank you.
Thanks to phlearn team for this episode :). Here's a trick for people wanting to work on high resolution image but don't have a high performance machine:\n1.You can duplicate your file and lower the resolution\n2.Apply your liquify modifications to this SD file like Aaron shows you\n3.Go back to your HD file \n4.Apply directly your previous filter (cmd+F)

hi phlearn team.most of the time if anybody try to teach me i simply sleep. but aaron made me to listen and learn, phlearn is not just a channel it is a university. i need a vid tutorial on camera raw filter and what is difference between lightroom and CRF. can i get same effect with CRF like LR. Please do a video by making a photo optimize with CRF. only CRF!!!
Thanks for everything you do for us .... BravO
this guy probably has a lot to share with novices like me, but his manner of teaching is waaayyy too scattered, \n\nSir, slow down, collect your thoughts, slow down, and go step by step with the tutorial. I finally bailed out at about 14:00. It's too bad, I bet he knows what he is talking about, but I have watched as much as i can and learned very little.

Man, I freaking love Phlearn.

Another Liquify video that I cannot see tools used and poor instructions. Starting to wonder if it is my computer?
Can you do a video on how to do a pixel dispersion on a photo? Also if you do how can I send you a picture to use?
the only way I see to change the size in ps is to use this bracket [ or this ] alt seems to bring up the eye dropper and ctrl + alt copies the image:(
