Adobe Photoshop Tutorials
We are going to create a fire effect like this:
Create new RGB document and type your text in white on a black background.
Use Filter --> Stylize --> Wind with these settings:
Click Image --> Rotate Canvas --> 90 degree CW, hit CTRL F to apply the Wind filter again.
Rotate and repeat another time.
Repeat another time and hit CTRL F two times this time.
Rotate back to original position, it will look like this now:
Click Filter --> Blur --> Gaussian Blur
Set it to Radius 0.3 pixels and hit OK
You are going to apply the Ripple filter now. ( Filter --> Distort --> Ripple..)
This is what you will get:
Click Image --> Mode --> Grayscale and confirm the Flatten dialogue
Click Image --> Mode --> Indexed Color
Click Image --> Mode --> Color Table.. and choose Black Body
There you go, done!
