Create a black background and type white words on it.






Create a Gradient Map adjustment layer and set the colors like this.








Select the smudge tool and use a soft brush with these settings







Start smudging the word layer.









You can add a wood texture over the type.
Use the burn tool to burn the wood where the fire is hitting.
I also adjust the gradient a bit.

Nifty. Very Happy

How would you recommend adding smoke to this effect? Also how do we then apply a wood (or other) texture to the letters after creating the flames? Or is this not the best technique for textured letters?


(I haven't had a chance to play with this one yet or to compare it to your previous fire mini-tut)

I do like that, but I prefer something along these lines:

(though a bit more complicated)

They didn't make the fire. Confused

Thanks, Rey!

How many stooooooooooooooopid 'tutorials' have I seen where they say, "here's how to make fire on letters: take the letters, download this pic of fire, paste it on!"

Here's how to turn a pic of a tree into a frog: download a pic of a frog, overlay the tree, erase the tree. Voila! Razz
