Want to do magic swirls? This is how. This goes off the same concepts introduced in "Simple Glow Tutorial" and introduces the use of paths.

I used this technique in this picture: [link]

I also forgot to mention for the multiple swirls i have on the right as an example, I changed the layer blending mode to "Hard Light." These modes are available on the in the layer window ( windows > layers) in a dropdown menu, the default is "Normal."

If you don't know how to use the pen tool, check out this tutorial: [link] by ::iconblackdahlia:

Thank you very much for the tutorial. Not only is it a great effect, I learned a bit about photoshop in general.
Moved from the tutorial to tinkering with mixing it with photo's: [link]

Did you turn on simulate pressure? When you stroked the path?

It's a checkbox in the dialogue box that pops up when you go to stroke the path.

Then I dunno, cause all the steps are in the tutorial. If things aren't there then maybe you have a different version of photoshop. ^^;
