    Not really, but I found this cool effect I can do with some smoke stocks!

    So I was working on this ExRPG banner, and I added a smoke stock to try to get it to look like its 'hot'. I set the overlay to lighten only and bumped the contrast and colorized it, and BAM! I had this glowing, almost electrical effect!

    So I duplicated the layer and blurred it a little, boosting the contrast and brightness to get a brighter glow.
    I thought it was a pretty good effect and wanted to share :3

    It really does look cool!
    But the color is not choosable, is it? If it is, that would be even more awesome!

    Sounds like it is, since he said he had to colorize it! :)
