Hi

I am new to Photoshop and used the smudge tool to get a great eblurring effect. I am assuming that I used the default setting. I can't figure out how to get back to that.
I have attched an example of some work I did and another of what I am getting now. This is the smudge effect I want This is the smudge effect I want This is what I am getting now. Don't know how to change it back

"If you have doodled with a tool’s options and want to get back to the default settings, click that tool’s icon at the far left end of its options bar. Choose either Reset Tool to reset only the current tool, or Reset All Tools to restore default settings to every tool."

Start Photoshop and immediately hold down Ctr+Alt+Shift. This will set to default by removing preferences.
