Okay, thats what I did with Pie™ over a few days.

Okay, to make the background dark, its easy, One way is lto create a new layer, get out ur paint brush, have it black, paint over everything u want blacked out. then use the tool above the layers list and adjust the opacity and fill meters, easy.

Do the exact same thing as the my previous post, but with a paint brush colored the same as your light saber and paint it on where you want it to glow, easy.

If these don't help, go here (http://www.good-tutorials.com). It may take some time in finding what you are looking to do, but you can learn to do some other awesome stuff too.

I can't do lightsaber effects, but(and I mean no offense by this) I've seen better. Wheres the old Blade picture someone did? That was awesome.

Again, I mean no offense. The fact that you can do it is awesome.

Hey, Winduwt105? In case your question wasn't answered, you can also go to Filter->Render->Lighting effects. Change the color to the color of the lightsaber, and angle the light so it hits the side of the face.

I think addy would look cool in a 'reborn' jumpsuit that sports the logo "I'm a crazy wanker"

I dont think anyone would be offended by that, unless we have any neo-nazis on here.....I hope not :(

Expand your Imagi-Nation You mean Nazis? I don't think it's a religion :D

Also, have you noticed that besides that picture of that wirdo up there, I'm the only one who added lighting? The Saddam with lightsaber picture I done quite a while ago, what I've added now is only that... let's call it light :p

I can't believe the censor doesn't pick up on that, Astro :xp:

I mean, you're right an' all. Maybe that's why it lets it through ;)

I removed the original sword in both pics, then I drew the blade (white) the length & thickness I liked for the saber on a new layer which I named 'core'. Then I rounded the top end of the saber with the Paintbrush tool. I duplicated/cloned the layer with the saber core on it to a new layer named 'blur1', and used 'Blur Average' on it at strength 10-15. Repeat with corresponding name changes until the saber glow looks good to you, then merge all the saber blade and core layers (DO NOT MERGE the background layer with the saber blade/glow layers). After that, use the Retouch tool, set it to 'Hue to Target', choose the color of your lightsaber, and color in the saber layer. It should turn out quite well - I have the .psp files if you want to take a look.
