Chapter 24. XTRA TOOLS > Using the Smudge Tool

Using the Smudge Tool

The Smudge tool provides you with a quick and easy way to add a soft edge to an object.

To use the Smudge tool:

1.
Select the object or objects you want to modify.

2.
Choose the Smudge tool from the Xtra Tools toolbar 9. Your cursor changes into the Smudge fingers.

Figure 9. The Smudge tool in the Xtra Tools toolbar.


3.
Drag the fingers along the direction the smudge should take. A line extends from the object. That is the length of the smudge 10.

Figure 10. Dragging with the Smudge fingers controls the length and direction of the effect.


4.
Release the mouse button to create the smudge 11.
