In this tutorial, I’ll explain a quick and easy way to make a starburst effect.

First, create a new document in Photoshop. I’ll use 600 x 400 as my dimensions and 72 as my resolution. Now, choose your gradient tool, and make a top-to-bottom gradient, with the top color being “00aeff” and the bottom being “005a84.”



Now, go to Filter > Distort > Wave, and use these settings:



After you’ve done that, go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates and select “Rectangular to Polar.”

Here’s your final image:
