Title: Blending/smudge settings
Post by: Mlindegaard on September 24, 2018, 03:21:15 AM
Hey Guys.

Have any of you found the perfect setting for getting the smudge tool to blend really nice and smooth? I find it really hard to make it actually blend more than it smudges. I figure it depends on using the right brush and settings.

Did you try “Fine Bristle Smudge” brush?

There is no alternative to a physical blending brush. Smudge works if you use one of the textured brushes (sponges and grunge work or one of Kyle's brushes work best) and reduce the flow to 6-30% depending on how soft you want your smudges to be. However, the smudges destroy the fine texture. So, if you want to preserve it, use clone brush with "soft light" blending to make it slightly lighter or "multiply" to go to the darker side.
