Classic Starburst Background Effect In Photoshop

In this Photoshop Effects tutorial, we’re going to learn how to create a classic "starburst" background, the same effect you’ve undoubtedly seen hundreds of times in grocery stores, department stores, and in those weekly flyers that flood your mailbox. Creating the effect is easy. We’ll be using Photoshop’s Polygon Tool, a Solid Color fill layer, the Free Transform command, and one of Photoshop’s little known but very useful features, Transform Again. Along the way, we’ll learn how to find the exact center of a Photoshop document using rulers and guides, and how to make objects snap to your guides!

Once we’ve created the background, we’ll learn how to easily change the colors used in the effect, and we’ll even see how to save it as a Custom Shape so you’ll be able to use it again any time you want!

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Create A New Photoshop Document

The first thing we need to do is create a new Photoshop document. Go up to the File menu at the top of the screen and choose New…, or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+N (Win) / Command+N (Mac). Either way brings up Photoshop’s New dialog box. For this tutorial, I’ll create a 10 inch by 10 inch document at 300 pixels per inch, although there’s no particular reason why I’m choosing these dimensions.Turning on the rulers in Photoshop.

The new Photoshop document appears.

Step 2: Show Rulers

To have the effect appear to “burst out” from the center of the image, we need to know where the center of our image is. The easiest way to find the exact center of the image is by using Photoshop’s Rulers and Guides. Let’s first turn on the rulers. To do that, go up to the View menu at the top of the screen and choose Rulers:

Go to View > Rulers.

By default, the rulers are turned off in Photoshop. The way you can tell whether they’re on or off, besides looking in your document window, is by looking for a checkmark to the left of the word "Rulers" in the View menu. If you see a checkmark beside the word, it means the rulers are already turned on, in which case there’s no need to select them here. If you do not see a checkmark, it means the rulers are currently turned off, so you’ll need to click on the Rulers option to turn them on.

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.
