Okay, the plugins you will need are: Inside Out Zoom Blur Deluxe Anyway here is a finished product: Anyway, lets begin. 1. Open a blank canvas (any size) and use Paint Bucket () tool to fill it in completely black. 2. Make a New Layer (). Use Julia Fractal () effect (Effects > Render > Julia Fractal) with the following settings. Note: Here play with the colors using Color Tint (Effects > Color > Color Tint) or Curves (Adjustments > Curves ( ) to make more interesting orbs. 3. Use Zoom Blur Deluxe effect with the following settings. 4. Use the Inside Out effect and you should come up with this. Addition: Apply AA's_Assistant (Effects > Object > AA's_Assistant) effect if you are not satisfied with the white outline around the orb and you get this result 5. Create a New Layer () and use Paint Bucket () tool to fill it in with white. (Yes it's all white now but don't worry we'll fix it.) 6. Go to the Layer Properties () or press F4 and select the Overlay blending mode. Remember we are still in Layer 3. 7. Flatten () the image (first Layer 2 and Background, then Layer 3 and Background). BUT WAIT: IMPORTANT! If you are going to play with the settings of the orb leave it on a seperate layer. 8. Use some glow and play around with it. I got many different results. Hope you liked this tutorial as it was my first THANK YOU! Also remember to keep the orb on a seperate layer if you are going to fiddle with it Addition: You can apply other effects to make the image more colorful. Below is an example of applying the Radial Prism (Effects > Color > Radial Prism)effect to a colored image. In step 2, you can also apply any other effect that generates a pattern (for example: Clouds (), or Turbulence (), or Julia Plus effect, or some other effects from the MadJik' all plugins pack by @MadJik, or other authors).
