Lightning Video Tutorial

In this tutorial we'll look at creating a realistic lightning effect using the gradient tool and the difference clouds filter, and then blend the results into a stormy photograph taken within the beautiful scenery of Utah. The result will be a Photoshop-generated lightning strike in a real-world landscape.
