You HAVE to do it with a black background. However, once you are finished, you can save the image as a JPG and then re-open the JPG image. Go to Menu: Select-->Color Range
Set the fuzziness all the way up to 200. Click on the black area and and press OK. Now all the black is selected and you can just delete it. This way you can create your flames on a black background and then move it to whatever else you want.
Yeah, COLOR RANGE is a great command.
I've also been getting more versed in using channels for selections and building my masks from them. It allows you alot more Pin-Point accuracy...
Thanks, for the Technique, Alec.
