Photoshop: Pro Retouchers need better Liquify

Liquify needs an update to support:
1. Smart Objects
2. Command (control) F for redoes
3. Mesh speed-up

All of these issues are critical for high-emd professional retouchers who work with very (2 Gb plus are common) large layered files. Smart Object support would allow them to return to a move and refine. Command F repeat would allow them to apply the same move to multiple layers as needed, and finally the Save & Load mesh is painfully slow - so slow that many retouchers are forced back to CS4.

Liquify is used a LOT to make the beautiful more perfect - but it needs some attention to bring it up to speed with the power of Puppet Warp.

Thank you!

Liquify can be applied as a Smart Filter in Photoshop 13.1 for Creative Cloud:

Mesh and general performance has been greatly enhanced for Photoshop CS6 (13.x) in general:
