Thanks (also for the welcome and the tip about the lens flare), I will keep that in mind for the next time I'll use a lens flare effect.

Glad you like them. I use a layer mask, with the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) i delete what i don't want (the background), since you don't want it to come out jaggedy you'd have to 'click a lot' (dont know how to explain it else) so it won't come out jaggedy but smooth.
Of course you can also choose to use the Magnetic Lasso Tool, it depends on what you prefer.
