reputation are highly appreciated Razz



In this tutorial, we will be looking at how to recreate Mother Nature using photoshop. We will be using Filters to create lightning effects.

To start off, let's create a new document in PhotoShop of dimensions 400x300. Choose the Gradient tool and a gradient Black to White, then fill in from left to right:


Spoiler:
 

Next, goto Filter > Render > Difference Clouds. Feel free to undo and redo to get the lightning effect you want:

Spoiler:
 

Notice the main black line through the middle. This will be our lightning bolt. But to isolate it, we first invert (Image > Adjustments > Invert or Ctrl+I) it:

Spoiler:
 

Then we want to goto Image > Adjustments > Levels:

Spoiler:
 

Use the black slider on the left, of the Input Levels to isolate the lightning bolt, like so:

Spoiler:
 

We can add multiple bolts of lightning by repeating the steps. Create another layer and add a gradient again, but this time, change the direction like so:

Spoiler:
 

Then do the same as before: Filter > Render > Difference Clouds:

Spoiler:
 

Then repeat the Invert and Levels steps above:


Spoiler:
 

Now if you change the Blending Mode of this new layer to Screen, we should have both our lightning bolts visible together:

Spoiler:
 

If we wanted, we could erase parts of a lightning bolt, too. Then once done, hit Ctrl+E to merge the two layers together:

Spoiler:
 

Finally, we can change the color of the lightning by going to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation. Make sure the Colorize option is checked, and find a color that you like:
