Light Your House On Fire

Other titles I thought of for this Photoshop fire tutorial were “Burning Down the House”, “The Roof Is On Fire”, and “Fire! Fire! Fire”, but then I realized how cliche that would be.I obtained my house photo from PhotoSpin.com (PhotoSpin #0780029).

First we’ll isolate the house by selecting it and putting it on it’s own layer [Ctrl + J]. Hide the background layer and open your Channels palette [Window > Channels].

burn_house2

Hold the [Ctrl] key and click on the Channel that has the most contrast. Press [Ctrl + Shift + I] to inverse the selection.

burn_house3

Click on the RGB channel to return to normal. Go back to your Layers Palette and create a new Solid Color Adjustment layer. Make the color white.

burn_house4

Go to [Image > Rotate Canvas > 90° CW]. Then go to [Filter > Stylize > Wind].

burn_house5

Run the Wind Filter 1 or 2 more times by pressing [Ctrl + F]. Rotate the canvas back by going [Image > Rotate Canvas > 90° CCW].

Create a new Solid Color Adjustment layer and make the color a burnt orange-red, fire type of color. I used #AB3D07. Set the Layer Mode to Color Burn.

burn_house6

Duplicate the layer you applied the Wind Filter to [Ctrl + J] and hide one of the copied layers. Select the Smudge Tool [R]. Go to the Brushes Palette [Window > Brushes].

burn_house7

Under “Shape Dynamics”, drag the Size Jitter up; Angle Jitter up; Roundness Jitter up. Click on “Scattering” and alter the settings until you get something similar to this:

burn_house8

Now start Smudging the layer. You should get an effect similar to this:

burn_house9

Unhide the layer you hid earlier. Run a slight Gaussian Blur [Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur] of around 2-pixels.

burn_house10

Now go to [Filter > Liquify] or [Ctrl + Shift + X]. Select the Twirl Clockwise Tool and lower Brushe Pressure to around 40%. Now add a little bit of craziness to your image.

burn_house11

You may want to add a slight Motion Blur [Filter > Blur > Motion Blur] or a slight Gaussian Blur [Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur] if you still have some harsh lines.

burn_house12

Now create another Solid Color Adjustment layer below your “fire” layers. Make the color something similar to your fire color or darker. I used #522A04. Use the Brush Tool [B] with a Black foreground to paint away some of the areas of the house, so that certain areas show through. You might want to lower the Layer Opacity too.

burn_house13

That’s pretty much it. I know I might have gotten a little confusing with the Layers, so here’s a shot of my Layers Palette for reference.

Medications are sumptuous, and some humanity cannot get the medicaments they need. Absolutely, one of the exciting place where Americans can order remedies is online pharmacy. You should always ask physician for vocational consultation about the treatment. What about sexual dysfunctions and vardenafil 20 mg? Certainly it isn’t all. Conceivably you read about vardenafil dosage. More information about the matter available at levitra dosage. Hardening of the arteries can help to erectile dysfunction. The truth is that nearly all prescription remedies have some kind of unwanted side effects, from headache to death.
