Figure 8.1

Smudges at different Strength settings.

You can also use the Smudge tool to mimic finger painting. This option starts each stroke with the foreground color. You'll find it quite handy if you need to blend some color into an existing picture, perhaps to hide something that's part of the original photo that you'd rather do without. Figure 8.2 shows an example of finger painting. This is a picture I'm quite fond of. Mom and kid were adopting a cat from the SPCA, and you can see them falling in love. But someone gave that cat a really odd name, which shows up in the cage card behind the boy's shoulder.

FIGURE 8.2

The Smudge tool can help change the cat's name, and blurring the letters makes it less obvious.
