Hi Everyone, (sry but for some reason I can't hit Enter key), I like to know how do I create stars with transparent background? I started with a blank transparent background but then it won't allow me to apply Noise. Not sure how to get around. Also can I control the thickness of dots when using Noise? Thank You. Trianne.

Hi there...

You need to fill the layer with color for the Add noise to work.

There's a tute here somewhere on creating space star scene.... let me look for it....

This one's from the PSG Challenge Area... Photoshop Challenge Week #5 .... with links to how to create space scenes...

This one's more specific on how to use noise to create a star field... http://gallery.artofgregmartin.com/tuts_arts/making_a_star_field.html.

It's not a matter of controlling the thickness of the dots. The trick lies in the use of brightness/contrast and levels as well as using the erase and clone tool and duplication/merging of layers in order to thin out the noise to "choreograph" the star scene.
