Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge


1. Open up your picture [ I'm using T.I ]
2. Go to Edit >> Define Pattern. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SKIP THIS STEP! VERY IMPORTANT!
3. Select the "Ellipse Tool" ""
4. Make an oval around the image how ever thin or thick you want
5. Right-Click inside the oval and select "Stroke and Fill"
. Select the stroke options NOT the fill options
. Choose whatever color you want [ I'm using lime green ]
. Set the Width to 4 and press okay
. This is what you should have

6. Repeat this step for how ever many ovals you make [ they do not have to be the same size] -- It actually looks better when they aren't.
. This is what you should have

7. Now select the "Clone Stamp Tool" ""
. Select Pattern
. Keep the Opacity or Pressure at 100% [ Depending on the photofiltre ] -- I'm using Photofiltre x [ newest version 2009 ]
. Make the radius how ever big you want [ I'm using 10 ]
8. Now start erasing around the picture, make it look like a snake
. This is what you should have

9. Now select the "Magic Wand Tool" "" and click on your beam.
10. Go to Filter >> Stylize >> Progressive Contour
. make sure the color you select is the same color as the beam
. make the width about 5, select "Blur" and press okay
. you should have this

11. Go to Filter >> Stylize >> Progressive Contour
. choose what ever color you want and change the width to 3
. check the "Outside Box" and select "Blur"
. change the opacity to what ever you want and press okay
12. Rigth-click inside the beam and select "Hide Selections"
. you should have this

13. Select the "Clone Stamp Tool ""
. Leave the options the same
. make it look like the beam is going around the image
. you should have this

NOW YOU'RE DONE =)
