Recommended Posts

go here, read it and instal the glow plugin.

when that's done....

- Open paint.net

- Hold control and press A and then let go and press delete. This will delete all the white parts of the canvas.

- Select the rounded rectangle tool and choose a nice bright colour.

- Draw the shape of a lightsaber on the screen like this...

- Duplicate the layer twice.

- On on the bottom duplicated layers, do a gaussian blur by about 20 units.

- On the top duplicated layer use the glow plugin with the following approximate settings...

1) Glow Radius = 6

2) Glow Brightness = 44

3) Glow Contrast = 25

- Now flatten the image and violá. A cool looking light saber effect.

Play with the values and you can find something to suit you.
