Hi there, there are two 'sparkle'/'magic/star lines' effects I'd love to learn how were made. These look easy and I'm sure they are, and I wonder if anyone here has already made something like this in Photoshop?

There are two images:

The one on the left is the sparkle effect.

The one on the right is the magic/star lines effects.

Can anyone share the process for creating these in your image?

To create the single sparkle, go to step 20 of this instruction

I've used this for sparkle trail (star lines), it works quite well

For the one on the left, use lens flare brushes.

You're the greatest, Peano. Thanks for finding those brushes.

Scatter brush stroked along a pen path with 'pen pressure' enabled on the path stroke and scattering keyed to pen pressure.


The same thing with a lens blur bokeh layer of itself above the original and blend mode-d in.
