    Create Glowing Lines





    Step 1:
    Get the Pen Tool (P) with these settings:


    And create your line the way you want. (If you've never used the Pen Tool before you should check out some videos tutorials here )

    Step 2:
    Go to your Path Palette (if you don't see the Path Palette go Window > Paths), and will it'll be saved as a kind of layer. Now that we have our line/work path we are going to create another layer. Go to your Brush Tool (B) and select an small brush (I used 9 px soft round). Now go on the Path Palette and right click the work path/line you have made, and select Stroke Path. A new little window will pop up, select Brush andcheck Simulate Pressure. This will make the brush that you have selected to go over the line that we have, this is the main detail of this tutorial, if you have a bigger brush the line will be thicker and so on, whatever colour you have selected will also be showing (you can change this colour later).

    This is the result you should have so far.


    Step 3:
    Now that you already know how to make your lines you can use Layer > Layer Styles > Color Overlay to give the colour you want to your line.
    To make it glow a little bit we will duplicate the layer and on the bottom one we will apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur (just enough to give it a little glow. I used 6.0 on mine).
    You can also give a different colour to the layer with the blur so it creates a cool glow effect. And this is what you should get:

                          Sorry I can't. I don't have any video capturing software and don't think my laptop could handle one either lol. But the steps are pretty simple so shouldn't be too hard. :)

                              I recently installed Photoshop CS6, and for somebody who has never had anything to do with it before, I'm looking for a place to start learning how to do something with it or where to begin. I think this might be a good place to start here. Thank you for this easy lesson CG. :good2:
