Re: Creating Realistic Fire

A very realistic fire effect can be obtained using the Filter>Stylize>Wind and the Liquify Filter.
There are also a number of plugins like EyeCandy that generate fire on a selectionwith a simple control panel to control the flame height and intensity.

Re: Creating Realistic Fire

get some free fire stocks, for example from www.sxc.xu and play with the layer modes on screen and lighten.

you can extract the red channel too, similar as extract water stocks as well.
