    I have a logo I done for a mobile disco I know and he wants a CD cover done for a promotional cd he will be giving out at a wedding fayre.

    My idea is to have a shot looking down at a wooden floor with the disco lights shining on it but I want his logo to look like one of the lights.

    My question is, how do i get his logo to look like a light shining on the floor?

    I hope someone can help cause he needs this done by next week as he needs to get them printed. :mad: Hopefully someone know a good tutorial that can help me with this.

    Cheers all

    A few options:

    1) Give the job to me. ;-)
    2) Get a torch or lamp, a piece of card and a printout of the disco's logo. Cut logo out of the card, tape it over the light, shine it on a blank white/bright wall, take a photo and then merge the photo with your original wooden floor image.
    3) Use a copy of the logo in Photoshop and using various lens blurs, lighting effects and colour balances, get it to look like a spotlight.

    I would suggest option 2 as it'll take you maybe ten to twenty minutes to set something up and make your life easier.

    Failing that, definitely option 1. ;-)

    I would have thought so sort of radial gradient and some overlaying would do the trick.

    lighting effects filter (in cs3/4 atleast iirc) - works like a light would (roughly)

    Realistically easy method, make it one colour (easier) then give it a black white gradient overlay (set to darken and lower percentage to 10%). Adjust layer opacity to suit.

    You need to describe the type of 'lighting' you're thinking of better as I can think of numerous options for lighting.

    As said previously I'd play around in Photoshop a bit: Import the logo>> colour/ gradient overlay >> free transform or perpective >> gaussian blur >> play around with opacity % and/ or layer options (overlay/ screen etc)
