    As a extra step, you can also duplicate the lines layer and add a gaussian blur to the copy, then change the BM=Color Dodge and regulate the opicity, to add a nice glowing effect.

  25. laurencemilo says:

    emaginative creation.. very nice. nice efffect.

  26. Hannah says:

    Confused with step 8 Filter>transform>scale. When I go to filter there isn’t an option to Transform, I can only find it in Edit.

    So using the Edit>Transform>Scale then in step 9 Select>Load selection… I now can’t make multiple gradients, just one that takes over the whole selection.

    Obviously doing something wrong… help…

  27. Nimai says:

    can we do it in adobe photoshop cs2?

    This is great. Uncovers a lot of software’s potential.

  29. Sara says:

    I’m having issues selecting the layer in step 9. It’s telling me that No pixels are more than 50% selected. The selection edges will not be visible.

  30. Cortney says:

    Yes, I’m having the same problem as Sara. I can’t seem to get step 9 to work.
