    I searched the forum to see if there was a tut on this and found none, So I thought I would give one...So here it is:

    First Choose your text or element you want to use..Then when that is done...Duplicate it...Once that has been accomplished..Color the duplicate the desired color you want your glow to be in, then add the Shadow effect to it and slide your shadow where you want it to be on the duplicate text or element..Once that is completed...then you need to select the BLUR addon and slide the blur slider all the way over to the right! now take your duplicate and send it to the back of the original and enlarge it a little so it appears around the outer edges of the original element or text. Then just tweak it to where you want it...WA-LA you now have a glowing effect on your logo or text...I have submitted two examples of this to give you an idea of what Im talking about so you can see how this works. This is one cool effect when its done right :)

    This thread has now been looked at 265 times (as of this writing).
    It'll live in infamy!

    Over time, you'll have spoken to thousands about this glowing text trick!
    Many many lurkers live here. They don't talk, but they're here.

    You just have to be careful at night. That's when the lurkers see you. You can't see them... but they can see you.

    Its eery.
