wanting more

I loved this tutorial up until the end. The sparkle part was what I was most interested in and you didn't tell us how you did it. I wish you would add that. The first part and the detailed instructions on adapting the brush was wonderful.

Ahhh, its quite simple really. Draw the sparkle using a brush. Now duplicate the spark layer, and run Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with a radius of several pixels (depending on your document size). Change the blurred spark layer's blending mode to 'screen'! Now repeat this process with a different blur radius (using a duplicate of the original source sparks, of course), and keep repeating until you get the effect that you want... :P

Sparkle harder than it looks

i got so far to find some spark on your (very nice) site, but im also stuck with the sparkle. i have a white spark and that dont change anything ive i blur it (what is logic) maybe you can explane a litlebit more precise how you did the spark, that would be very nice cause its a real nice tutorial.

Just go to Layer > Layer Effects > Blending Options. Its also visible near the opacity on earlier versions of PS.

no spark

Well I also would have appriciated a detailed explanation on how to make the spark. Otherwise this is an excellent tutorial.
Here's my try on the tutorial (it's a banner for my blog).

Had to modify the setting a litte due to the small size, but as you can see, the spark isn't nearly as good as yours, even though I used the brushes you recommended.

Arrghh! Ok, so many people have requested a tutorial on making sparks now that I *WILL* make one. Keep a look out - it should be ready in a little while...

  1. Brushes don't have a "colour" as such - they apply whatever colour you have set as your foreground.
  2. To access the options for Brushes, you have to click on each section in the Brushes palette. For example, to set Scattering options, click where it says Scattering on the left side of the palette, then the various options with their slider bars will appear on the right.

To do the spark thing is quite easy; I'll refer to this laser cut tutor:
U have now 3 layers: background, cut and residue.
Apply on cut and residue layers Lens Flare filter[ Filter/Render/Lens Flare] and chose Movie Prime; the Brightness I set it around 150% [experience a little with it and chose what fits U].
Now merge all 3 layers in 1.
Finally on this last layer [Background] apply again this Lens Flare; go to Filter/Render/Lens Flare - for a "blue laser" use 105mm Prime and for a "red laser" use 50-300mm Zoom or 35mm Prime; the Brightness I set it around 95% [chose what fits U].
That's all.
