Making the image glow?
Dec 16, 2012

I need to make a glow effect around the brush (see attached).

I have attempted this in Adobe Illustrator (using the "Outer Glow" effect) but I am distinctly underwhelmed by the results.

Can anyone suggest techniques in Photoshop that might give me better results. Essentially I am looking for a very strong/vibrant glow effect that really jumps out at you.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
