Lightning Effects

I'd like to do some lightning/electricity type effects in photoshop. Are there any plugins that do that (like the alien skin ones)? If not, brushes I guess :/

YOUR WRONG SB!

Do this Dr. B

1) Go to Filter> Render> Clouds

2) Filter> Render> Difference Clouds

3) ctrl + i (Inverts the image)

4) ctrl + l (levels manager)

5) Bring the left level all the way to the right or until desired lightning effect.

for perfect lightning ..
> stand on tall building with 5 foot or longer metal pole.
> preferably in heavy cloud coverage or before a storm
> wave metal pole frantically
> have a friend watch with a 35MM camera with shudder open
> this procedure works perfectly even without photoshop
for you to see flawless lightning effects



hope this helps
