Smear Tool

This tool enables you to smear on the active layer.

The same settings are available as for the brush tool except there is also an All Visible Layers option. If this is enabled, the smear tool will take the color of all visible layers into account. However, the smearing itself will be applied to the active layer only — the other layers remain unaffected by the tool.
