I am having issues with the new upgrade to Photoshop CC 2015 on Mac El Captain. The only thing I did was upgrade from a working CC 2015 to the new version. Using the liquify tool give the following look. There is a box around the area liquified that is lighter than the other areas. When I turn of Use Acceleration in Graphics Processor, it is better but .... I didn't have to do this in the prior version i.e.. Yesterday.

New Update: The Squiggly waist is the liquified:

We are now able to reproduce the problem in-house and are working on a fix.

For the time being there are two workarounds:

1. Use 8-bit images instead of 16-bit images with Liquify
2. Disable GPU for Liquify by holding the Option key down as you select the Liquify filter from the filter menu
