    Beautiful smudge Ray!! The red/green combination always makes for a vivid contrast and helps this image really pop!! gg!!:biggrin:
    Oh, and the textured background works very well too!
     
  8. Anyone know where to get the smudge brush?

    OK. I guess I am the only one here who doesn't know what smudging is. Ray, can you explain what you did and how you achieved this wonderful result? It is stunning, but I have never heard this term and really don't have any idea how you achieved this effect.

    Thanks very much.
     
  11. Lisa helped me smudge about a year ago, but since then I can't remember the technique.

    Gale-
    I use CS2. Are there brushes in Photoshop for this technique?
    Thanks
     
  17. I found the brush
    uncheck Current tool only and look for Smudge tool #23

    Yes Ron
    The left too bar. The veritcal one..It is where the sharpen, blur and smudge tool
    Choose the smudge brush.
    At the top the little drop down by the smudge tool
    Chose a brush
    try different brushes , different modes and different strengths.
    Just choose a pic nd try to get the feel of the different settings. I will look for the tutorials.


    Some tutorials
    If you guys want to learn more how to's, etc....photoart tutorials and more, see this link:
