Fire It Up!

The fun-factor of creating digital fire is vast. Quite simply, it's a rather stupid amount of fun. Happily, you don't have to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on the full-blown version of Photoshop to get it done. Every filter you need lives right here in Elements. This tutorial will allow you to set your inner pyromaniac free and experiment with this technique on the most unlikely of photos. Heck, this alone could be reason enough to attend your next family reunion.
