    Star Matter
    Learn how to "Create something from nothing" with the "Big Bang" technique applied in Photoshop!
    1.) Open Photoshop, and create a new file. Go to File > New. Make it 300 X 200 pixels at 72 dpi on a white background then hit OK. Next, press "D" to make black your Foreground color, then (Alt + Backspace) to fill background with black.
    2.) Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise. (When the dialog box appears, enter Amount at 35%, choose Gaussian & check Monochromatic, then hit OK.)
    3.) Next, go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. (When the dialog box appears, set the Radius to 0.5, then hit OK.)
    4.) Now, go to Image > Adjustment > Threshold. (When the dialog box appears, drag the slider to the left to populate your sky with "Stars".)
    Sample of "Star Matter" after Threshold adjustment.
    Now, use (Ctrl + F) to repeat the Gaussian Blur Filter again to soften the stars.
    5.) Next, create another layer by clicking on the New Layer icon, located at the bottom of the Layers palette. Fill it with black (Alt + Delete.) Now, lets add a major star to our scene. Go to Filter > Render > Lens Flare. When the dialog box appears, just click OK, or (You may set Brightness and Lens Type settings to your own preferences if you wish.)
    Should look similar to this:
    6.) Last step, to combine the Lens Flare with the "Star Matter", Go to Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options.... (Change Blend Mode to Screen.)
    Here, I created yet another layer and added some interesting vistors for my finished work.
