Shining Effect

I know this was already been asked but no one answered to the person who asked this. Can someone teach me how to make a shining effect exactly like this? I've already tried some tuts for this but I cant really get the exact result. I've been dying to know this. I hope some good samaritan can teach me. Thanks.

I'm using PS CS5 btw.

It looks like the maker used a white reflected gradient set to overlay. You could either use the gradient tool or the gradient adjustment layer to make it. I'm just going to use the gradient tool.

First go to the Animation Menu button (top-right on the Animation Window) and make sure New Layers Visible in All Frames is unchecked. Duplicate the frame in the animation window so you create a second frame. Create a new layer in the Layer Palette.

Before creating the gradient I would select the area of the image I want this effect to show up on with the marquee tool. I don't want it to show up on the border of the image.

In the Tool Menu, make sure the Foreground Color is set to White. Select the Gradient Tool (G) and choose the White and Transparent gradient (it should be the second one). Select the Reflected Gradient style and make sure Reverse is not check-marked.

Now you can play around with making the gradient. Once you're happy with how it looks, set Layer 2's blending mode to Overlay.

Select Frame 1 and make a duplicate and move it to the end of the animation and follow the same steps, except when you make the gradient place it to the left. Keep doing these steps until you get to the end of the image. (For this it only took four frames).

Change the frame delay time to your liking. Make sure Loop is set to Forever and Save (File > Save for Web & Devices)

Mt Result: (it's not exact but you get the gist)

Hi, I'm the maker of this stamp. All I did was pass a faded white line set on overlay (80%) 4-5 times.
