How to Create Brilliant Light Streaks in Photoshop
Lighting effects have become quite popular, and are an effective way to add bright eye catching details to a photo or illustration. In this tutorial, you will learn a simple technique for creating brilliant light streaks which can be used in different ways to add motion and brightness to your designs. Step 1 First, lets create a nice background for our effect. Open up a new Photoshop file, and fill the background with black. Now, create a new layer and fill it with white. Step 2 Now lets create a light from which all of our streaks will be created. Step 3 Make a copy of the light layer that we just created, and hide the original. Step 4 Now we get to start having fun.
