Thanks Davescm. Could you perhaps be a bit more specific with the steps. A step by step tutorial would be helpful. I am moderately familiar with photoshop.

Sure I'll give more detail.
1. I opened the image
2. I used Layer - New Layer to add a new empty layer above the image
3. I used the pen tool set to path to draw a path along the white area. (This path is required for the Flames Filter to work)
4. I went to Filter > Render >Flame and adjusted the controls dialogue to get some flames that matched your image.
I used Flame type "5 Multiple Flames Various Angles and in Advanced used Flame Style Normal
5. I clicked OK to render the frames to the layer.
6. In the layers panel I right clicked on the layer then on Blending Options.
In the dialogue that appears I moved the Blend If "Underlying layer" black triangle to the right. Holding down the Alt key meant I could split the black triangle.
This means the new flames only appear in the brighter parts of the underlying layer
Then click OK
7. I added a another layer using Layer - New Layer
8. I used the pen tool to draw a new path
9. I used Filter > Render > Flame to create new flames but this time altered some of the sliders just to make the second layer different and set the advanced Flame style to violent
10 Finally I went to the layers panel and set that new layer blending mode to "Multiply"
That was it
Have a play around and shout out if you get stuck
That sir, is of true help. Hats off to you and thank you very much for taking all your time to explain.
Dave, I love your answer. Folk still using old versions of Photoshop and saying that's all they need, can't getting involved with illustration, and creating content from scratch. Although, to be fair, I used to produce decent flames before we had CC Render > Flames. It'ts only a month or two till the next major update — I wonder what treats they have in store for us this time? We'll soon have to start looking out for the teasers.
Hey, they are already out there. This one looks genuinely useful
You are right. Some new features become daily essentials others (like Render Flame) are rarely used but very handy when they are needed.
If people are subscribed to ProDesignTools' newsletter, then they will have recieved an email about four hours ago as I type this which reminded us that CC 2017 was released on the first day of MAX last year. This year MAX kicks off on the 18th October, so just a month away. ProDesignTools are giving away a year’s free _full_subscription to Creative Cloud.
Did anyone read any of Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen’s 3Q report that went out this week? By heck it is some of the best ‘Management Speak’ I have seen in a while, with some outstanding phrases like ‘Adobe Sensei’. It also mentions Adobe’s third quarter revenue which is just shy of two billion dollars! I wonder how much of that comes from the Photoshop & Lightroom Photography plan, which I honestly believe is so reasonable, it persuaded a lot of people who previously used pirate software, to pay for r Photoshop? Apparently a large percentage of the nine million people who have a CC subscription, have the Photography plan, so it is not a stretch to think that Adobe should thank Scott Kelby for persuading them to introduce an affordable plan for casual users.
