im trying to make a sendo wallpaper for my pc but i have a few problems

for the background i edited a pic of sendo hitting ippo with the smash, gave it a spotlight effect and removed all colours except red and black

what im having problems with is the second pic of sendo i took from another print screen ... he's missing his striking hand and i thought i'd replace it with a glowing hadouken like effect where the hand should be, and make it blend with the yellow aura glow i already gave him but it really doesnt help help because

1.the lens flare just lights whats there it doesnt actually create a glowing ball

2. im not sure about how make a glowing fireball or energy ball from scratch

also if i put an effect on a layer or frame how can i make it so that every layer thats part of the same picture gets effected by the effect as well???

here are the pics ..... the first one is without the lens flare effect the second one is with one of the glowing lens effects (you will clearly see the problem with the lens flare version)

(BTW i havent added text and 1 more pic is waiting to be added ... so basically its nowhere near complete)

Sorry no but maybe go to the tech thread and I think there was a photoshop somewhere around here.
Good luck and sorry for being any help.

Your problem looks like you set the lens flare on the layer, but it looks more like a layer mask. Its hard to tell from your picture, but need to be wayyy more descriptive on what you are attempting to do. You want a glowing ball to be at the end of the arm, and apply the lens flare for a "flash" type effect?

wow a pro

thanks for answering bro .... what i was trying to do is exactly as you said, get a glowing at the end of the arm so you cant tell that the hand is missing and it looks cool too

whats a layer mask by the way?? im kinda self taught i learned from weeks of just messing about

secondly if i do set the flare how can the lighting effect work on everything on the pic ... without merging them, incase i fuck up

what i got from the flare is that it only lights up whats already there ... it doesnt actually add a glowing ball does it?? ... if so do you know how i can create a kind of chiodori effect on the arm??

I would start by creating a duplicate layer of the background, you never want to edit the background layer. Next you will probably want to start reading about Layer Masks, they are really helpful when creating effects. Draw out a picture in MSpaint of what you want it to generally look like, and I can point you in the direction of tutorials that will teach you how to manipulate the different aspects.
