    Hi,

    I've just been looking at the Centrality Communications website.

    The glow around the chip in the top left corner of the main section is a really nice effect because it's not just a straight forward glow. Any ideas on how to do this would be great.

    Cheers

    Paul

    You could do it with lens flare in Photoshop?

    Don't think so. It'm sure I'd recognise it if it was the lens flare

    to get the color of the glow you'd use color dodge, and as for the glow it's self, it can be done in millions of different ways.

    One way is to use the wind filter with the polar coordinates filter and some rotations of the canvas. Also, you will want to use a gaussian blur after changing from polar coordinates to rectangular. The rays of light tutorials will help you. The gaussian blur will help make the effect you seek. Other than that, it's all up for you to decide.

    No, I don't believe Lens Flare was used to make that glow. I agree with zionlocke on his theory. You'll wanna set the value of the wind to a smaller number though to get the result you are looking for.

    Also try using the 'SolarCell' plug-in from Flaming Pear.

    If you produce the flare on a new layer then select the area the size you need and add a little feathering, then select inverse and cut, you may get a simalr effect. (with a bit of playing around).
