Adding Lighting Effects

Hi

I am trying to add a spotlight to an image I took recently and unfortunately it comes out with lines across as well as the spotlight effect.

Can anyone help.

Hi Gill,

Tell us what you did to get that result, ie. the program used, the filter, (Render -> Lighting Effects ?), the process or whatever, Just give as much info' as poss' and we'll see if anyone can come with a solution. I've never seen anything like this before, but I only use PS and Lightroom.

Regards, Tom.

Hi Tom

Hubby suggested trying on his computer which still runs on VISTA and it worked fine. I was originally using a new upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit - looks like a CS3 problem on the 64 bit. Has someone got a Windows 7 32 bit to try the same process on to see if it is simply a Windows 7 problem or 64 bit problem?

The package I was using was CS3, Filter, Render, Lighting Effects.

Thanks for the reply Tom.

Regards Gill

Hi Gill,

I think you may have solved the problem yourself. I seem to remember reading, in the days of yore, about some people having difficulties with running CS 3 on Vista 64 bit. But that was long time ago and I was using CS 4, as it didn't affect me, I didn't pursue the matter. Therefore I can't help you any further.....sorry.

Regards. Tom.
