    Well those are some stock photos of smoke, or Photoshop smoke brushes either way you can't create an exact replica but you can get similar results using the Flame plugin. :)

    just take a pic of some smoke, the set a dark green as FG color and a light as BG color then click, Colors>map>gradient map

    it wont be the same, but try!

    personally for single colour smoke i would play around in colours>hue-saturation or colours>colourize

    you can also try colours>desaturate and then add a new layer, slap a gradient and set the layer on overlay.
