- Photoshop Tutorials - Northern Lights Tutorial - By: Shinta

Northern Lights - Such a lovely thing to look at in the night sky...

- Step 1
For this tutorial, you will need at least Adobe Photoshop 6 and probably ample knowledge on how to go about Photoshop.
- Step 2
To start off, create a new canvas with a black background. On a new layer create a line using the Line Tool with 3 pixels.
- Step 3
Next, distort the line using Filter > Distort > Shear . Just adjust the line to the curves you want and hit OK.
- Step 4
Then scale and skew the curve line.

- Step 5

Ok, still get it? I sure hope so. The proceeding steps are a bit hard to do (or at least to teach).

Select the curve line by holding CTRL and click on the curve line layer. Then press Q to enter Quick Mask. The screen will really turn red (^^).

Once in Quick Mask, go Edit > Transform > Rotate 90° CW.

- Step 6
Then go to Filter > Stylize > Wind (Method = wind; Direction = from the left). Repeat the Wind Filter 2 or 3 times to get the length you want.
