This tutorial is about how to make a smoke effect in Photoshop using a simple black line and the easy to use smudge tool, very easy to follow and understand.

Smoke Effect:

Step 1:
Using the “Brush” tool simply draw a straight black line down the centre of the page.

Step 2:
Now using the smudge tool, click and drag from side to side whilst moving downwards aswell this therefore creating a zig zag movement with the mouse.

Step 3:
After doing this simply amend any parts which you think could do with improving by just simply dragging the smudge tool over the parts you want re-doing.

Step 4:
Use this effect in any way you want, for instance I have attached a picture of a cigarette to it, making it look like the cigarette is lit.
