Click here to view or download it Moderators Note: This tutorial has been rewritten by ReMake So we are going to make this: Before you start you will need following plugins: Random Shape Fill by @pyrochild Gradient Mapping by @pyrochild Color Tint by @Ed Harvey (optional) So, create a New () image (File -> New). Choose any size. I'm going to use my screen resolution. Set Primary color to 700061 (or you can choose whatever), and Secondary color to black as shown below: Choose Gradient () tool with Radial () mode and draw from the image center to the side as shown in the image below: Add a New () layer. Choose white color as a Primary color. Apply Random Shape Fill effect (Effects -> Render -> Random Shape Fill) Set the controls values as shown below, you can play around with number, maximum/minimum sizes. Add a New () layer and go to the same effect. This time you can change settings a bit, but mess around only with the number, sizes and if needed randomise circles. Go to Layer 2 (), and apply Gaussian Blur () effect (Effects -> Blurs -> Gaussian blur). Choose radius at about 25-30 and make these circles kinda very blurry. Go to Layer 3 (). Apply Gaussian Blur () effect again. But this time radius should be like the half of the previous attempt, or 1-10. Add a New () layer. Change colors to Black and White (), as it was by default. Apply Clouds () effect (Effects -> Render -> Clouds). Choose first setting at about 240, and lower the second. Change the layer's blending () mode to Overlay. Add a New () layer. Choose Gradient () tool with Linear () mode and draw something similar to what I did in the image below. Apply Gradient Mapping adjustment (Adjustments - Gradient Mapping) with built-in Rainbow preset. Then apply Gaussian Blur effect with a maximum Radius. Repeat (Ctrl+F) if necessary, but one time should be already ok. Change the layer's blending () mode to Overlay and lower the opacity till it looks good. (Optional) If you want, you can change the Layer 3 blending () mode to Overlay. Save (Ctrl+Shift+S) project as pdn file, so you can do something else later on if needed and after that merge () all layers (Image - Flatten). From this point you can choose way you want to finish your project. Option 1: Duplicate the layer Apply color tint Apply glow Change the opacity. Option 2: Just apply glow I'm going to do the first option. So duplicate () the layer and apply Color Tint effect (Effects -> Color -> Color Tint) with any color you want. Apply Glow () effect (Effects -> Photo -> Glow) with default settings. And the last step is to change opacity () of the layer. So that's all.
