    I would really love to learn how you create the flare itself. How about a tutorial on how to make flares of different kinds?

    Nice tip Matt, and thanks for the download.

    For colorizing in ON1 Effects what filters/tools would you recommend?

    Thanks, Matt. This is a cool technique! Like JackieG, I would like to know how to create the flares so I can use them on my own photos that I plan to sell, thus avoiding copyright infringement 🙂
