Step 1

Open your picture in the photo editor. Use one of your own pictures or find one by another user by searching for #FreeToEdit in the app. Tap on the Tools icon and open the Stretch Tool.

Step 2

Use two fingers to zoom in. Tap on the paintbrush icon at the top of the screen. This brush allows you to lock certain areas of your picture so you don’t distort them with the Stretch Tool.

Step 3

Tap on the paintbrush icon at the bottom and use the slider to reduce the brush size. Use your finger or stylus to mark the areas of your picture that you’d like to preserve. Tap on the check mark to confirm.

Step 4

Tap on the Warp icon to open the settings panel. Use the sliders to reduce the size and increase the power of your brush, then use your finger or stylus to start stretching areas of your picture.

Step 5

Make the brush size even smaller, and continue stretching until you’re happy with your edit. Tap on “Apply” to confirm.

Step 6

Tap on the arrow icon to finish. Save your picture and share it on PicsArt with the hashtag #Melting!
