Does anyone know how to produce a star-filter effect? (Apart from using a star-filter.) I have Photoshop but I haven't been able to locate a star-filter effect.

Thanks

well...i'm sure you could make the star effect in photoshop....but it wouldn't necessarily be easy...

you could probably search "Photoshop Actions" on google, and see if they have any for the star effect....

you never know...lol

sorry, i don't know any ways in particular :-\

Select the brush tool, open the brush popup window and display the popup menu. Select assorted brushes, append to add brushes to your current selection. Locate the brush named Crosshatch 4 and select it.

Lower the flow popup menu to 50% on the tool options bar

Change foreground color to white in the toolbox

Place your bursh pointer where you want the starburst to appear and click and hold it until your starburst is complete. The more you click it, the more pronounced the effect.

Open the brush popup window and select a soft round brush that is smaller in diameter than the starburst

Change the opacity to 30% on the tool options and the flow popup to 100%

Paint a small circle in the center of your X shape to create an inner glow.

You can also do it with the other starburstbrushes available

Is it possible to rotate the starburst, or to make a six-ray starburst?

There are two starburst brushes further down on the list. Try them. You'll have to play with the brush size. The large seems to be a 6 point star.

You can cause any object that you can select to rotate using transform.
