Liquify is a great filter for adjusting the shape of your subjects. Apple-Shift-X brings up the Liquify tool, where you can warp, twirl, pucker and bloat your image, among other tools. The combos that help you change the size of your brush dynamically will work here as well.
Just make sure you separate your subject from the background if it would give away the manipulation. On this shot of Kata Dobo from Maxim magazine the background tiles are distorted showing digital breast enlargement and waist trimming. Btw, I couldn’t find this image on the Maxim site, but I did notice that they did not only make a small mistake with this image, but also in copy. They are talking about Kata’s ‘babushka’ charms, which means grandma in Russian, however she is Hungarian. Although, I realize not many would concentrate on the background tiles or the copy. 🙂
