    Very nice. :)

    I don't know how to use PS at all. Yes, I know it's hard to believe. I just never got into it, that's all. :(

    How did you create the flame effect? Did it take a special program to do it or something?

    G5^2(squared)?...i'm confused...if you are implying dual processor, wouldn't it be G5x2?

    i believe the lfame effect is a third party filter in eye candy.

    perhaps this type of thing would better be submitted to MacSnaps, part of the FunMac Network

    actually the flame effect was done manually with just the default features of Photoshop 7

    no eyecandy or other 3rd party filters

    i liked G5 ^2.. thats all :)

    I beg anyone and everyone that does desktops, to remember that Apple makes a 23" LCD!! No one makes a 1920x1200 desktop!! Please, please, start at that size and scale down :(

    Looks very nice, but lose the 'G5 squared' thing. It just doesn't make much sense. Good job on the PS stuff.

    Yeah, the squared was playing mind games on me too. loose it. And nice flames, since you didn't use 3rd party plugins ;P

    Okay, but how would you use PS to make a flame? If it's too difficult to explain, and would take hours for you to write and days for me to try, then fuggitaboutit. ;)

    k well first

    make a black background
    take your text (in white)

    rotate it 90 degrees
    apply the wind filter 3-4 times.
    rotate it back

    blur it..

    overlay a yellow hue
    duplicate the layer then overlay a red hue

    screen the red on the yellow

    flatten this onto its own layer

    liquify the red/yellow result
    into a flame like look. and there ya go
    i wont tell you everything. but tutorials are available online and in magazines


    i realize im not being very detailed. but it is fairly easy and can give spectacular results.!

    i think it works better for thinner fonts..

    Liquify! I always forget about that filter since it's up at the top seperated from the others. Thanks for the explaination.
