Creating One-shot North Star Trails

October 8, 2015

Create the popular North Star trails in Photoshop with this powerful and simple technique using just a single shot of the night sky. Now you can be more flexible at your locations and spend time creating a variety of compositions instead of spending hours at a single spot and taking hundreds of shots to create star trails later. [Tip: Just make a note of the position of the North star at location to create an authentic star trail with the correct position of the North star.]
