I'm guessing that your talking about the "Whisper your love" how-to at
Your correct in stating that the strength field for the paintbrush no
longer exists. What you need to do is use the smudge tool in its place.
If you click on the icon that has the left hand pointing down with its
index finger, it will pull up a "retouch" box. The retouch modes are
lighten, darken, soften, sharpen, emboss, and smudge. Take some time to
play with these tools, and I think you'll be able to convert that how-to
to a 4.x tut.
