Outer glow

Recommended Posts

If you've got the guy on a seperate layer (otherwise, achieve that first), make a new layer below the guy but on top of the background. Then select the guy layer, use magic wand on the area around the guy, invert the selection and switch to the new made (glow) layer. Then use the fill tool with the color you want the glow to be on the still selected area. Now use gaussian blur; the higher the radius of the blur, the higher the radius of the glow :D

Move to General Discussion, btw.

Ooh, Oooh, I know a really easy way. Drop Shadow, set the X and Y axis' to "0" and set the glow blur or size or whatever it is to whatever suits your mood. Pick a color and you're done.

BTW, that used to be my sig on another message board lol.
