Step 26

Now create a new layer and fill it with black,and go to filters->render->clouds,again go to filters->render->difference clouds, and change the mode of the layer as screen,so that u get this effect


Step 27

Erase some of the lightning over the unused area in the picture such that u get the lightnings only over the letter layers


Step 28

Now select the text tool and type the word geek.


Step 29

Step 30

You will get this effect.


Step 31

Now create a new layer and fill it with black.go to filters->render->lens flare and apply the third option,now change the blending mode to color dodge and transform it and warp it and place it near the letter p


Step 32

Repeat the step to create a flare and place it for the other letters too


Step 33
