Hi,

 

We're sorry that the Smudge tool is not working in Photoshop. Would you mind sharing the exact version of Photoshop you're using along with the version of Windows you're working on?

 

Please check the settings you're using for the Smudge tool. You can try changing the Mode & Strength for the tool to check if that makes a difference. Also, please ensure you have the correct layer selected in the layers panel.

If the issue persists, try resetting the tool using the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/basic-troubleshooting.html#tool

 

Let us know if it helps!

Regards,

Nikunj
