I remember a long time ago there was a tutorial on making light auras around a person or object using Chromy, but I can't seem to find it now. Is this turorial saved somewhere that I can read it, or is it no longer available? Any help would be great. Thanks.

Here you go... to access the tutorial section simply go up to More> and then Tutorials in the top navigation (I agree that is is rather hidden).

Does anyone know of a way to make them any other colors?

I've been trying to get an answer to that question for around a month now in another thread. Sorry, I can't help you. I wish I knew how.

im not really sure how you would do this, but if you could but a very transparent overlay of a solid color over the object with the aura, would that work?

actually, i think you would have to put a garbage matt with some feather over the colored overlay in the shape over the person. this way only he will be colored and not his backround.

On the glow layer, use the "Hue" function to change the color.

And just a recommendation, don't double post, edit your posts as it pisses some people off.
