I've been using Photoshop Professionally for 15 years now..since Photoshop 3 if I remember right. PLEASE for the love of Art create a blending option in the brushes so that it blends colors as you paint... even 2.99 programs on the iPad have better blenders then Photoshop. the smudge brush does not blend or work for the blending you would naturally get when painting. I hate switching to painter to get their blending brushes. There's probably open source code out there to accomplish this brush option if you don't want to program it. Pleas include it.. I keep thinking you would put it in every version..but it never comes.. There are so many people who paint with Photoshop and we can do work arounds but it doesn't turn out as well.. THANKS!
