Photoshop will allow you to create attractive designs. Also, its effects make your designs eye-catching. One of these effects is flame. There are many ways to create this effect, but I tried to train a way that is simple and also very close. The good thing about this method is that you can run it on the text or on any form you have, and it’s not limited to the text. Therefore, we are going to teach how to create a flame effect in Photoshop. Hope you like it.
We use Adobe Photoshop CC 2017.
Well, this is the effect that we want to work together.
Create a New document with 600×600 pixels and make the background black. Click on Create.
Now use a Horizontal Type Tool (T) in white and write a text with any font you desire.
Now, by clicking on the Create a new layer icon at the bottom of the layers, create a new layer (shortcut: combine key Ctrl + Shift + N to create a new layer)
Now hit CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + E. This will give you a copy of all the layers you see.
Now, go to the Edit—> Transform —> Rotate 90 Counter Clockwise and move the text as shown below because we want to apply the wind effect on it.
Now go to Filter—> Stylize —>Wind and run this effect on the new layer we’ve created.
Repeat this process two times to effect two times more to make it more intense.
Now go to the Edit—> Transform —> Rotate 90Clockwise to bring the image back to the direction that it was.
Go to Filter—> Blur—> Gaussian Blur and fade to 5 pixels of the image with this effect.
Now combine the Ctrl + U key to open the Hue/saturation window. In the bottom right of this menu, touch the Colorize and also set the 40 for the Hue field and 100 for the Saturation.
This creates the color of what you see below.
Now make a copy of this layer, right-click on the layer and select Duplicate Layer.
Now again, we will change the hue / saturation in this layer. Hit Ctrl + U and set hue -40.
Now, in the top menu of the layers, change the copy of the layer to Color Dodge.
Then, right-click on the layer and select the merge down menu (you can see it at the bottom of the menu). It combines all layers to a layer.
Now, to make the fire effect work, go to the Filter—> Liquify. From the left, select the highest icon that is Warp (with a red circle). In the settings on the right, place the brush size between 40 and 50 and brush the pressure between 40 and 45.
Now click on the corner of the text that is whiter and create the flame by dragging it to the shape.
Now, for the next step, consider brush size 30 and enter the second round to create a flame.
Every time you thought it was enough and the flames rolled over finish it.
Now put the layer that contains the text over all the layers we have. Then, make the text black.
Now select the text layer. Go to the Layer —> Rasterize—> Type. Select the Eraser Tool (E) and remove the upper half of the text with a soft brush.
Now you can create a fire reflection on the floor. To do this, select a half of the text. Combine the Ctrl + J key so that a copy of the place you selected will fit into a new layer. Scroll to Edit—> Transform —>Flip Vertical to reverse the image vertically. Select the move tool (V) and place it underneath the text. Now, set the opacity of the layer to 20% from above the layers. Finally, you have below image.
