In today’s Adobe Photoshop video tutorial, Manfred Werner looks at the blur, sharpen, smudge, dodge, burn & sponge tools.

Learn essential retouching and post production skills each Wednesday, right here on Orms Connect. Tutorial Wednesdays are brought to you by Manfred Werner.

Please note: This video tutorial requires no advanced Photoshop skills and only shows Basics & Tools. This is Part 7 in a series, view the previous tutorials via the related posts to the right.

In today’s video tutorial I will quickly introduce you to the blur, sharpen and smudge tool. The blur and sharpen tools are not the ideal tools to create a blur or sharpen effect – rather use the sharpen or blur filters under the filter gallery option. Once I’m finished with those, I will go over to the dodge, burn and sponge tools and show you, how to use and work with them in a few easy steps. Please note: These tool are to be handled very carefully, they easily ruin your images in seconds!
