Sparkling Eyes
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
1.) Paste your base. Select (Either) your lasso tool, or circle tool and then make a selection around the eye (iris/pupil) only. (I used the circle tool.)
2.) With the eye selected, click the "COPY" button, then deselect. (I use PSP X, so if your using a different program, you should know where to find the buttons. With PSP X, COPY is located under "EDIT" and "Select None/Deselect" is located Under "SELECTIONS".)
3.) Now paste the copied selection as a new layer and then line the layer up with the base eye. (It is really simple to line up.)
4.) Click on your "Add Noise" option. (PSP X is located under "ADJUST") Enter these settings. Random - 75% Noise - Check "Monochrome" Box - OK. Set Layer to Overlay 100%. Be sure to use your eraser tool, if needed to clean the eye layer up.
5.) Duplicate the Eye LAYER (Not Base) and Set Layer to Color (L) 100%. You can either choose to leave it as is, or add color, by using the colorize option. DONE!!!!

Glowing Text
1.) Make a base layer (Any Size) floodfill it with Black.
2.) Choose a font (I used plumero script) Select a rainbow gradient, or color of choice that you want as your under glow, then type your text. Now add a Gaussian Blur to the layer. (Note: The smaller, or thinner your text, the lower blur opacity you add. I added a GB layer with 3.00 Radius, to my text.)
3.) Add a new layer and re-type the text using a different color. (I chose black, to match my canvas, which also makes the color stand out more.) Now select your move tool and line up your solid text, over your blurred text. Now, select the BLURRED layer in your palette and begin duplicating that layer ONLY. You will now notice the glow getting brighter. The more you duplicate, the brighter the glow. Change some of the duplicated layers from normal, to overlay, or color, for a richer glow. DONE!!!!!
