Figure 8.14: Dodge and Burn and Smudge Tools
These tools are new additions to The GIMP that allow you to create further effects with your images. The dodge and burn tool is for adjusting the brightness or shade, and is especially useful for working with over- or under-exposed photographs. Switch between dodging and burning with the Options menu.
The smudge tool does exactly what you would think—creates a smudge wherever you click and drag using that tool.
