Amazing Fire effect on Photoshop

Photoshop has been an amazing one among us as its easiness to edit photos/ images. Most of the photographers use Photoshop to make their photographs most perfect as they wish. I have been working as a designer along with my study. And I got many tricky ways to make many effects and use many options. By this article my aim is to inculcate you a new idea to make an original fire effect on Photoshop.


Photoshop is a software developed by Adobe company, thus it is also called Adobe Photoshop. Adobe has also launched other editing software like Adobe Flash, Adobe Illustrator,etc. Photoshop is used worldwide because it is very comfort and useful. Most of the software/ App interfaces are designed with Photoshop. It is simple and humble to learn it.

Effects on Photoshop

In the side of an editing software, effects are the changes/ alterations applied for a Video/ Image or any other file. Here Photoshop can be used to edit photos and to design Brochure, Notice, Flex, etc. And whenever we design we use so many effects and filters on the Photoshop.

Fire Effect

As I got some hits from the internet I tried some thing with Photoshop. Actually this effect is not a result of a risky and deliberate work. Normally many ready made effects can be applied and many other effects are made manually by designers, which need a good experience. But this effect can be done by following some simple steps, even if you are a firs user of Photoshop.

Below are some more steps , I hope which could really help you

  • Open Photoshop and then go to Files >> new
  • Now you will be asked for the size of the new window (size eg: width=6; inch hight 3 inch; resolusion: 72;RGB mode)
  • Fill black color at the background -( D, Alt+ BackSpace). Then Write anything in white colour (Eg: Fire)
