  • Jim H

    I really like the background effect. I only have one suggestion. I started by creating a smart object; I was able to use all the filters except for Hue and Saturation which becomes a seperate layer. Then, you can tweak each filter without starting from scratch.
    This background reminds me of the “Tron” movie.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for the tut! It was fun, and easy.:)

  • ME

    I have an idea for this.
    At the colorization, use Gradient tool>Spectrum and change blending mode to Overlay for gradient. You can use different gradients, but whatever. And apply the gradient horizontal, vertical, Radar style, Reflected style, or whatever you want to use.

    Best wishes to all!
