I also just quickly made these two generators in Photoshop. Just load the actions into your photoshop, create a new document, and generate (play) Stars A or B.

Subsequently this allows you to see every action I took broken down. :)

Feel free to use the preview JPEGs if you want as well.

I have an ancient (circa year 2000) yet still useful version of Photoshop, and I cannot find a way to open the file through a new project or applying filters.  Maybe because I have a severely outdated version?  No big deal anyway.  I can take a starfield image and jazz it up quite a bit.

Would that be Photoshop CS or 6? I own both and could try and fish them out to remake it. Know they both have guassian blur and noise filters.

Thanks for your response!  I have version 6.0.
My mood ring stopped working today.  I'm not sure how I feel about that...

Alright, I have been looking and have found my CS, which is version 7.0, it may provide a action that would work in 6.0. Though in retrospect I'm not sure if I remember actions even being part of 6.0. Still looking for my 6.0 disc. I know I had the box and a burned copy that I use for installs (back than I burned copies of everything and saved the original discs. was young and lost a lot of computers/discs so was developing habits)

Here rich, try this, it was made in 7.0 and hopefully will import into 6.0.

Once imported, start a new document, blank (transparent background) and than click play on the Stars Legacy

It took me a little bit of finagling but I got it to work - thanks for your help!

I'm glad it worked! That file should work through 5.0 to CC. Unfortunately the noise created in this earlier version has some issues with high resolution, but the levels seem to mask out the anomalies.
