Learn how to create a simple, realistic fire effect in Photoshop.
1. Start a new image 200×200. Creat a new layer
[ layer/new/layer ] and name it ‘fire’. Let’s fill it with white color [ ctrl+backspace ] and then, render it with difference clouds [ filter/render/difference clouds ]. Repeat the filter 1 or 2 times more. You should come up with the same result as previewed on the left.
Final. Use the layer and set it ‘soft light’ or other modes on your own work[layers] as to use effectively the fire you just created. Note that the fire can very much vary depending on the resolution and parameters you started from, but fortunately, the effect will always be the same. So go on, don’t fear to try!
NOTE: The final result haven’t been done only using ths tutorial. It is strictly a sample.
