    Corey, i think you may well be the first person to find something useful to do with the dissolve blend mode 😛 But seriously, what a great idea to get particle effects !

    i got to say this. this is a badazz tutorial on Photoshop. I always wanted to do some kinds of ignited or fire effect. I know the settings now. Thank you very much. Corey.

    I have only recently found your website. Of all the tutorial websites that I have seen, this has to be one of the best! I try and visit this site at least once a day, as I find all the tips and pointers really useful! Keep up the brilliant work!

    Way to rock the dissolve mode. I rarely see anyone utilize it and after recreating the tutorial myself, that last step totally sells this effect. That was a great last addition to this effect. Thank you!

    Hi, I think your tutorials are great BUT I cannot watch this one because a magazine ad comes in the first third of the tut. The tutorial does NOT resume after the ad. Why is this????

    Still too fast for me. What can I say; I’m a Bonehead! I think part of it is I am using Windows and the photoshop interface is a little different. The tutorials are awesome though. I may get lost, but I still pick up tidbits that will be helpful. Thank you for all the great tutorials.

    With providing links to your tutorials to a film editor friend of mine, I have persuaded him the merit of photoshop over applications such as “motion”. He is now doing a lot of his designing in photoshop and regularly tells me he has far greater control over his final image than before! The power of “Mr Corey”!

    Corey you’re the best!

    Neer – I haven’t got it either but I found out the way to make a some kind of chrome by my self 🙂 I want to say is: Combine gradient overlay in layer styles with plastic warp filter and curves. 🙂
