Part 7. Painting and Drawing > Smudging the “Paint”

Smudging the “Paint”

Some of the painting tools can be used either for painting or for retouching details in photos, and the Smudge tool is one of these. Artists who've worked with pastels will be familiar with the technique of rubbing chalk edges to soften them.

With the edge you want to soften zoomed in the image area, switch to the Smudge tool or press R.

If you want, change the tool properties in the Options bar.

Click and drag along the edge to soften it.
