Create Stars in Photoshop

Creating Stars in Photoshop

For this image we added stars to the sky to give it a bit more detail. Doing this sort of thing is not as hard as it sounds and can really make a photo stand out. We start by opening the Brush palette and working with Spacing, scatter, Size Jitter, and Opacity Jitter to get the stars spaced out.

Using Curves

Today we are using a mix of Curves layers to bring out details in this image. The trees in the original photo were almost black, and much of the detail was lost. We start by brighting them up and bringing back detail.

We also use Curves to add Color and Light to the sky, making the photo a bit more dynamic!
