What do you use for editing Gmod?

Muzzle flares,blood effects (Like when someone gets hit and stuff) rain, snow, etc. etc. I’ve got a few screenshots that need effects, but I don’t really know what to use.

Photoshop or GIMP. GIMP is harder to use, but Photoshop costs money.

You could also use the Source engine particle editor and learn how to make Lua scripts…

But can you use things such as blood effects and muzzle flares? Thats all I really want to know.

The Emitter tool should have blood and muzzle flash, among other things

I know about emitters, but they dont look like the the kind of stuff you’d find in the screenshots on this site. How do i get the more realistic type?
