How to use the Smudge Tool in Photoshop

Fresh from our YouTube channel, check out this simple Smudge Tool tutorial for Photoshop.

The Creative Bloq YouTube channel is full of useful tutorials, great interviews and fresh video content relevant to the design community. And as part of this we have our 2-Minute Tool Schools – quick guides to the essential tools in Adobe's design software.

As the name suggests, the Smudge Tool enables you to smudge tones by dragging from one area to another. Experiment with painting modes and more with assistance from the easy-to-follow Photoshop tutorial above.
