Jason Feb/17/2011 10:06Thank you very much for this wonderful tutorial. Just the effect I was after and your process looks great and realistic. Just an FYI for Mac users: at the time of writing this, Lighting Effects is disabled on Mac's running PS in 64 bit mode. To fix this simply Get Info on Photoshop and select run in 32 bit mode. Relaunch PS and you're good to go.

I am from Guinea and now teach English, please tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "Isfdb logo search the database title learning to write comedy author connie willis year type essay."
