  1. Thanks heaps for taking the time to explain, MBd, Alex and jmac. And for bearing with this noob. I finally got the fur brush to work in smudge tool after changing the colour of the dots from black to white. The brush editing panel is neat for creating different brushes. You are right Alex.

  2. Hi Alex, that's the effect I was looking for! Hmm, maybe my mistake lies in the creation of my 'fur' brush. First, I created a new document with transparent background.

  4. Hi, I am new to photo editing and have never used photoshop before. While I am having tremendous fun with my affinity photo software, it is also a steep learning curve for me. While looking up photoshop techniques on youtube, I came across the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZraT1pwdSo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6eEo-UnbfE I created the hair brush in affinity photo (new image brush) and was able to use it with the paint brush tool. However, the brush did not work with the smudge brush tool. Is this technique not possible with affinity photo? Regards,
