Manip Tips + Tricks - Glow Effect

I've been meaning to do this tutorial for quite some time. It wasn't easy breaking down my sometimes slightly erratic workflow to 10/11 steps that are easy to explain and hopefully easy to follow. This tutorial covers the basics of how I do my glow effect. Experimenting with this is key to finding the perfect balance for your manips.

I can't wait to see what you will do with this!

More Tutorials in my GALLERY & in this OVERVIEW JOURNAL

Overview: My TutorialsThis is an overview of the Photomanipulation / Photoshop Tutorials available in my Gallery. Some are a little old (still using PS7), but the principles are still valid (even though some of the really old ones may seem outdated aesthetically). Generally, the further down in each list, the newer the tutorials. Tutorials with this symbol youtube Icon  are video tutorials - the newer ones can also be found on my youtube channel.
There are now also photography and stock/resources providing guides listed below the manip ones :aww:
At the bottom, you will also find a list of possible future tutorials, a collection of ideas. If you have something I could add to this list, do feel free to comment and let me know!
If you want to get a reminder each time I update this list, please tell me in a comment - I'll create a list of people at the bottom and you

Thank you for this glowing tutorial. I struggles sometimes to
find the right colors, say for a streetlamp or a candle flame. I
hope I will remember your tips. But then again, I can always
come back again and check where did I go wrong :)
