Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a star trail with the Spin Blur filter, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
- Here's another scenario using the Spin Blur filter.…Here is a star trail created with a very long exposure.…And here is a night sky, let's make our night sky…into a star trail.…I'll come to the Layers panel,…right-click to the right of the Layer name,…and convert that to a Smart Object.…Enter my Filter menu, Blur Gallery, Spin Blur.…Reduce my view size by pressing control minus…or command minus and then increase my…the size of my spin, dragging outwards from the edges…until it covers the whole of the image.…
I can increase the size of the blur…by dialing it around from the control center,…or, I tend to find this easier, just using the slider.…I'm gonna go down to...…about, let's go to 20 degrees.…You'll notice that when we apply the spin,…things get very dull.…So, I'm going to accept this.…But we now need to do some other things to add a layer.…I'm gonna come to the Filter menu and to Camera Raw.…
And in the Camera Raw plug-in, applied as a filter,…what I'm gonna try to do is…bring back some of the highlights.…
