    How to create a stars in the night sky effects with adobe photoshop

    Tutorial: Star In The Night Sky Effect
    Software: Adobe Photoshop 6.0
    Difficulty: Beginner

    This Adobe web tutorial will show you how to create a cool night time backdrop with stars.

    Step 1: Fire up Adobe Photoshop and go to File + New to create a new file image. Set the width and the height to the settings that you want. I chose 300 pixels for the width and 150 pixels for the height. See the 'Step 1 diagram' below.

    (Step 1 diagram)

    Step 2: Now you will need to fill the image area with a color. Select your color from the palette (I used the color black #000000) and then go to Edit + Fill. A Fill box will now appear, select Foreground color and click OK as shown in the 'Step 2 diagram' below.

    (Step 2 diagram)

    Step 3:
    Now go to Filter + Noise + Add Noise. An Add Noise box will appear, select Gaussian and Monochromatic then move the Amount slider to 142 and press OK as shown in the 'Step 3 diagram' below.

    (Step 3 diagram)

    Step 4:
    Now go to Filter + Blur + Gaussian Blur. A Gaussian Blur box will appear, move the Blur Radius slider to 0.5 then click OK as shown in the 'Step 4 diagram' below.

    (Step 4 diagram)

    Step 5: Finally go to Image + Adjust + Levels. A Levels box will appear, use the Imput Levels 172 0.35 248 and then click OK as shown in the 'Step 5 diagram' below.

    (Step 5 diagram)

    Now to finish it off go to Layer + Flatten Image and then save it to your hard-drive.

    The finished Indented Stars In The Night Sky
    Effect should now look similar to the below image.

    I hope this tutorial was of help.
