What kind of glow? Color? Just lighter? You could try Render-->Light Ray or whatever that one is and position it in the eyes.

How can I position something so it only affects his eye? I tride using the lasso tool but couldn't get the results I wanted.

This is really my first photoshop, lol.

And I want to make his eyes bright - evil and fiery.

Thanks.

Well this will give you ideas on getting only the eyes. Then you just need to play around with image settings (brightness, contrast, saturation, color, etc) on individual parts. If you don't like the sharp look (like if you dont select the lasso COMPLETELY right), just use the blur option and do a small blur around the eyes. Using the burn tool right near the eyeline also works to make it not look photoshopped.

You may also want to search google for fire images or whatever and then use that as a layer to blend into the eyes...

Is this the kind of thing you wanted, or something else?

Marquee tool, select the eyes. Copy and paste. Right click the layer, go to blending options, then go to outer glow.

To increase the look, take the red layer, and right click it. Hit blending options. Then apply an outer glow.
