Red Hot Heat Effect in Gimp

Completed Image

To apply a nice Red Hot Heat effect to an image simply follow these steps:

  1. Open Image
  2. Colours > colourise
    1. Adjust the Hue value to around 200, basically you want a good solid blue colour, sway more to light than dark though.
    2. Adjust the Saturation to around 75
    3. You can leave the lightness at 0, but probably don’t adjust it more than 20 either way
  3. Next Duplicate this layer
  4. Then go Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur... and set it to about 75
  5. Now change the mode of the blurred layer to Overlay and and then merge the layer down
  6. Duplicate this layer again
  7. Go to Filters > Blur > Motion Blur...
  8. Set the length to around 50
  9. Set the angle to around 90
  10. Again change the mode of the blurred layer to Overlay and and then merge the layer down
  11. Next add new white layer and apply a Difference Mode to it.
