Neon button

I have this button that I made in photoshop, I imported it into flash but the problem I am having is turning it into a neon sign.

Anyone know how to do this?

Big up…

go an example?

neon is essentially just a bright colour blurred (usually on top of black) - so in flash you would for example, write 'The Blue Oyster in a blue running writing font on a black background. Break it apart so it’s embedded. Go Modify-Shape-Soften Fill Edges. The settings will probably be about right.

If the light doesn’t look light enough, copy the centre bit and choose a slightly lighter colour and place it back on top of the image leaving the softened edges the same.

and that should look about right.
