Re: photoshop smoke effect tutorial

Here is my attempt at the tutorial i did change the shape to a long thin shape
and on the wave box dialogue i had more luck when i selected the triangle as type
but then repeated the wave and fade wade steps lots and lots and lots (get the idea) of times

Fun though'
i think i have seen a smoke tut some where will post it here if i can remember where ! ! ! !
