realistic 3d look? - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

hi all!! i've got a cool looking flame-fractal image (looks like a jelly-fish) - what can i do to make enhance the 3d-look? is unsharping bits of the image the perfect method? - i want the image to really stand out as an object, floating above the canvas - do i have to work with shadows? what can i do about the edges of the jelly-fish - at the moment the image looks more or less like a "decal" ... are there any tutorials/hints?? thanx marcus...

    Put glow around the image. Also put a shadow (deep). (all on seperate layer above background)

    Make blur the backgroud slightly or Sharpen the image.
