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.


ok ok ... thanks will do

and that would be really helpful thanks alot
