Create beautiful star and lighting effects


  • Ron Martinson

    "Star Effects allows you to do some interesting things with flare and stars to spice up your photos.
    The results can be pretty cool with just ONE CLICK of a preset. It just works!"

  • Larry Schaibley, In The Desert

    "You can shoot at a smaller aperture and get star effects, but it's much simpler to add them with Topaz. The presets work great, and it's very easy to change effects manually."

  • Blake Rudis, Everyday HDR

    "Star Effects does exactly what it implies and it does it well. It is perfect for any photographer who wants to add a bit of bling to their final product."

  • Digital Lady Syd

    "A great addition if you enjoy the creative aspect of Photoshop. There are so many different looks. Give it a try – it might just be the inspiration you need to get that really great look!"

There are some photos with powerful elements that grab your attention. You almost can't look away.

A great way to achieve this in your own work is to add light effects that naturally accentuate your photo, like light rays, lens flares, and sun beams.

We specifically designed this product to make this process easy. Star Effects includes everything you need to create natural and compelling lighting effects that will make your photos shine.

Great lighting effects

Choose from a variety of beautiful star effects like traditional, starburst, cross, hollywood, and more.

Auto-detect light sources

Use a single click to apply your lighting effect at exactly the right place in your photo.

Completely customizable

Adjust any part of the light effect that you can think of, and never create the same effect twice.


Light is everywhere. Accentuate a mild glow, create a powerful sun flare, or do anything in between.

Use Star Effects and your creativity to make your great photos even better.

(Hover for before & after.)

Not every image needs star or lighting effects, but the ones that do will look absolutely amazing with them. Use Topaz Star Effects to create one-of-a-kind photos that no one will be able to look away from.
