Newbie Problems copying a light in lighting effects

Hi, me again....

I am trying to do this tutorial.... I want to learn to to do a light source, and then a reflected glow from that source.

http://www.photoshopessentials.com/p...ght/page-4.php

I have hit a snag on page 4 of the tutorial, re step 6.

The author says that having done filter>render>lighting effects (Light flashlight/Type Omni) on a duplicate layer - producing a nice little circle of light - I should be able to copy it further on the same layer (to make the 'reflected glow')

He says you need to click on alt on the keyboard and drag. I have tried doing this on the layer itself, and by doing filter>render>lighting effects, and doing it on the screen that comes up there, but nothing happens, in either case.

I'd be most grateful for some help

I use Photoshop CS2.

Hi Canna W,
While you are in lighting effects, hold alt and drag from the center of the omni/flashlight. You will see the lightbulb icon as you drag.

Duh! I am such a nit Ray! I followed your instructions and this time attempted to copy the light before I pressed OK, not after..... It worked.

Many thanks.
