lightning
    I'm trying to work out how to add an attachment to this post so that I can display one of my pictures. I've had 14 attempts so far and I'm getting nowhere because nothing seems to work????????

RE: lightning
It sure is colourful, and interesting to look at. Did you use many layers for the lightning effects, or is it the result of a drawing done by hand?

I used 7 layers for the picture. The lighting effects are done on single layers using filter tools. The back ground is from photo of storm clouds altered with the curves filter. Each element of the picture is on a seperate layer

RE: lightning
I never would've guessed that the clouds were from a picture of real storm clouds, it's a nice effect. Good work.

Which filter did you use for the lightning? I have been looking for one, but haven't found it ..

RE: lightning
Gaby, for the lightning I went to the render filter then nature and them to the flame and tried the various options there until I found one I liked. It might take a bit of playing around with to find the right one to suit what you want. I then copied annd inverted the flame to get the result I wanted. I hope this helps
