I will show you how to create a beautiful colorful tornado in Photoshop. You will like the final result in this tutorial.

Create a new file, which has the size is 400 x 400 pixel.
Then, use Gradient Tool (G) to make a background like below
0010428
Next step, go to the menu Filter >Distort>Wave. Select “Square” box
001042801
Then go to the menu Filter>Distort>Polar Coordinates. Use the default settings.
001042802
Press Ctrl + J to duplicate layer.
001042803
And then, apply the mode “Overlay” for Blending Mode.

Still on the copied layer, then go to the menu Filter>Distort>Twirl with the settings below:
001042804

Here is the result:

001042805

Then,we should merge all the layers and create a new layer. Next step, you fill any color which you like on the new layer. Or you could adjust the Hue/Saturation (Press Ctrl + U ). Please remember that to apply “Overlay” in Blending Mode. Here is the final result.

    You just make black as your foreground color and white as the background color. Easy!

    Hey everybody, what the tutorial means is:
    1) add a new layer (Ctrl+Shift+N)
    2) make a two-coloured gradient on it, choosing like blue as a background colour and green as foreground. Drag the gradient across the whole layer (you should see the two colours blending into each other now – nothing beneath).
    3)now, go for the cool thing! In the window where all your layers are displayed, you’ll find a dropbox, reading “Normal”. Click it and choose “Overlay”.
    Off you go, with this cute little graphic!

    Btw, thanks for the tut!
    Greets!

    You get the different colors by doing another gradient (with the colors of your choice) when you make the final color overlay.

  32. YoRo Says:

    I figured out the color problem, after you made the merged layer, all you have to do is:

    Select the layer with right mouse button > Blending Options…> Gradient Overlay: (Blend Mode: Overlay) and (Gradient: Chose any colorful one or make one yourself)

    Note: I did not use “Ctrl+U (Hue/Saturation)” at all, and by the above method, you get identically the same result.

    What’s with you tutorial guys? You’re always leaving a step out or giving us some magical end result without explaining the key elements to get to that step. How did you get the colors? This is lame without those detailed instructions.

    Great tutorial! Thank you for your efforts.

    And fellow readers, overlay works well but play with some of the other layer blending styles to see what comes up. I did a difference mode and wound up with a really cool and funky looking tornado.

    Just create your new layer (ctrl+shift+n) and fill with the gradient of your choice. Then in your layers tab select “Difference” on your gradient layer and check out the results. Some of the other blend modes yielded different and cool looking results, too.
