Neon on a Lineart
I'm trying to create a neon sign for my RP site. I have the line art I want to use, I inverted it so its white on black, and after I use the Gaussian Blur I go to color curve. There is no Alpha selection and when I simply try to open the Alpha to Logo no options are available.
Any suggestions as to what I should do?

I attached the original image.

RE: Neon on a Lineart
If you have "Filters > Edge-Detect > Neon" and want to control glow radius
Try this:

1. Duplicate image layer
2. Filters > Edge-Detect > Neon
(click in the boxes to manually type the sizes if needed)
Radius: 2.00
Amount: 0.20
3. Colors > Colorize...
Lightness: - 15
Saturation: 100
Hue: Whatever color you want Smile

4. Duplicate layer
5.
Filters > Blurs > Motion Blur...
()zoom [v]Blur outwards
Length: 11
6. One more bur
Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur...
Horizontal & Vertical (anywhere from 7.0 to 11.0) (smoothness of glow)

7. Change layer mode to : "Screen" , "Lighten Only" or "Addition"
.
   
.
(click for details, layers are titled by the order of steps)
