    Ok People...I searched again and didnt find this one, So here I am sharing another idea and technique with you, Hopefully you will not only find this "Neat" but Useful as well...

    Making an image look high-lighted or as I call it..Having Shiny spot areas....Longer to say but you get my meaning..

    Step 1- Take your image and select some swooshes and size them and place them around your image where you want them to be.

    Step 2- Now select "Colorize" and select the color you want your hilights you want them to be, I prefer white on a colored image.

    Step 3- rotate them to the position you want the shiny parts at...

    Step 4- Now select "Blur" and either opaque them a tad bit or Blur them to your desired level

    Tweak as needed...And you now have Shiny Spots on your image...It took me a whole 24 seconds to do the one below as an example to see for yourself, Not much time, Little thinking ( as you can see ) and added a nice effect to the image itself. So there you have it.

    EXCELLENT information .If you think about it the same technique could also be used to add custom shadows.

    In this day and age we are all spoiled visually (digital images- HDTV etc.) and if text doesn't pop it will be almost completely ignored...

    I made a sticky of it yesterday...before I put my :2cents: in . Happy to give credit where credit is due. It really is a great tip.

    additional way to make hilites or shadows

    In the new text add a comma, c, parenthesis or any other shape font, add to screen click rotatable, at this stage I use color when I've got it where I want it I change the color to white (for hilite) or some shade of grey for shadow and proceed as Worlock suggests.....
