Can somebody please point me to a good photoshop tutorial on how to create smoke? I've looked around on the web but the ones that I found were not satisfactory. I would like to create smoke that would be generated by fire or by a cigarette.

Video tutorials would be preferred but I don't mind a text tut if it's well explained.

Thanks.

Some of the ones at the top of those lists are pretty good. GL! :)

^ Thanks for the links. THIS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2bF69RYssY) tutorial proved to be particularly informative. The other tutorials I've followed all failed to mention that you need to 'randomize' your waves which is crucial to achieving the smoke effect.
