Yesterday I thought that it was about time for me to try and create my own textures to work within EffectsLab. And so I downloaded the free Paint.NET and learned it in a minute! (It's very easy to use, and I highly recommend it! I learned it without any tutorials, it's that easy!) So what I did was that I took a camera and took a few photografs of flames in out fireplace. I was then able to mask out individual flames within Paint.NET with an alpha channel and all of that. So what I'm trying to get to with this post is that I was pretty happy about the finished textures, and they work superb in EffectsLab! (You can create fires with then with the particle engine. Axeman's tutorial is very good.) So I would just like to share them with you people! They might not be the best textures ever, but they work quite nicely.
Here they are:
You're free to use them as you want! Enjoy!
