    im relatively new to photoshop (and this site), i have an image of a harbour in failling light, and at the end of the pier there is a red light on a beacon. i know you can buy filters that put star points on a light source (one of which i dont have).
    i was wondering if it can be done in photoshop and if so how?!

    Select the Brush tool, look through the choices of brushes available and choose a star-shaped one. If you don't see a suitable one, change the brush set and look again. When you find one the right shape, select it and set the size to what you need.Use the colour picker to select the colour of the light you're going to apply the star effect to, move the brush into position and click once. Any problems, let me know,hope this helps.

    okay i've had a good practice at putting stars and twinkles on everything...i can see it might be a handy thing....
    however, i think i'll purchase a filter as i dont seen to make them look very 'natural' if you know what i mean Smile
    thanku for help

    if you can stop down to f16 you may just get the effect you are after without using a filter. sometimes it works at f11 too,
