so these settings are supposed to be applied to the smudge tool right?

Hello, I've been loving the tutorials, the skin tuts were really useful for me :) I was hoping to pick your brain about this brush. I have CS5 and at first it worked fine but then for some reason I can't figure, when I uncheck the spacing box in 'brush tip shapes' I get the two dots either side of the white box. First time I tried it went blank as expected but now all I get is the two dots. I tried to type in 0% but it told me it had to be between 1% and 1000%. It just won't let me make it zero no matter what I try. Have you come across this before and if so, how do I fix it please?

Thanks a lot.

Still trying to figure out a way to get a similar brush in CS6. Easy enough to get something that blends as well, the tricky part is having the same brush let you keep/create the hard edges where you want them.

Yeah I have, it works good for smoothing, but no way to keep that hard edge (which is my favourite part :P)

yeah.. this is one of the reasons why both me and my husband are still sticking to cs3. later versions really messed something up in the brushes department....

nope. they messed something up from cs4 onwards in brush settings. the blender can never blend as good as in cs3. i have tried installing latter versions of photoshop (cs5) and i remade the brush from scratch in their new settings, but it doesn't work like it works in cs3, something went off in the settings, i dont know if its the scattering option or something went off when they remade the whole interface. its a shame because this was a very easy brush to make that gave maximum quality results.

I really like stjepan's blending brush it's so sad that it won't work on CS6.

Both of you really rocks.

its really a shame... you can try and make it using these instructions, i think it will still blend, but its not as efficient as it was in cs3.

im having a bit of trouble! everything is perfect except that when i turn the spacing off draggin the brush leaves big dots (not a smooth blend) Help?

:iconcalisto-lynn:

turn spacing on, drag it to 0%, then turn it off again. and dont rush when blending, if you do that it will always leave dots.

also what photoshop are you using? recently i tried out cs5 and the brush works horribly there, especially on a seperate layer. it tends to leave black spots behind.

Yep. CS5 does that. But you're right on taking time with blending. That leaves big improvement.

I'm currently using cs4, i guess using a brush with a bigger diameter will always leave such spots- I'll just use a smaller one ;)


Ow and about the black spots on cs5- have you tried to click the "sample all layers"? if you havedone it you will be able to blend the details on one layer with the base colour on the layer bellow :). And btw thanks for the tutorial.I love it when the stuff is simply and helpfully explained.

I have a computer that can play current video games no problem, but I tried the smudge tool with this and it lags the first second. I have to wait a full second and then keep doing the stroke, or I get a big space of nonblur area in a single stroke. How can I fix this?

did you do everything thats described here?by turning off spacing it should work fine. how much memory ram do you have? and also on what image size are you working on?

i have 4gb ram, and i work on 3094x4697 and 450px also i put memory usage of photoshop on 90% which would make it as top priority program.

I have turned off spacing already. It's the exact settings as described in the picture--I checked multiple times making sure I didn't turn anything on.

I have 4gb ram, great graphics card, and a i5 quadcore cpu.
I put my canvas 12x8 inches and 300dpi. The brush works fine but when I smudge with the blending brush, it lags the first full second. I either have to wait a bit to continue or I end up messing up the blending.

I'm sorry to post so late, but I'm just looking for clarification. The best way to use this method is when blending slowly? To avoid the bubble-like effect?
