Yeah, I know. You definitely don't need another set of glow brushes :D But, hey! Why not if they are free :aww:

11 glows handcrafted with Photoshop 7.0 :D

Quick tutorial:If you want to achieve the effect on the preview use a black background and white paint for the brush. Use a glow brush on a new layer (black layer is beneath). Duplicate the layer with the brush and set the blending mode for this new layer on ‘Overlay’ or ‘Color’ (Overlay works better for me). Select this last layer and open Hue/Saturation window (ctrl+U, command+U), check the colorize option an then move all sliders as you want to :)
(Note: if you have a white layer, and you do :) , slide down the ‘light’ slider to see the colours). If you think the colour of your glow is to light you can duplicate that coloured layer as many times as you need to. I duplicated the red glow layer three times :)

You can find more hawksmont Photoshop brushes on my blog :)

Thank you for these. The 'terms of use' link didn't work. Just checking if it is okay to use these for commercial works...
