how to produce light flares looking realistic?

is there an easy way to draw/make flares in Photoshop?

i remember i did one, but it took me hours as i did every flare manually.
i am looking for flares which have 6 or 7 rays and look max. real and natural

is flare the right english expresssion?

There is a pretty nice light flare filter included in my CS2 under the Render section that I can position nicely in images.

The most extensive and versitile flare plugin is the Knoll Lighting Factory. They have used these flares and flashes and explosions in many major motion pictures and it works beautifully in Photosop. The creator of this program invented Photoshop and also works for George Lukas' Industrial Light and Magic Studios doing Star Wars kinds of things I imagine.

Its $99 USD

The brushes called "Skip star sparkle" on this adobe exchange site work pretty well. You can do them on a new layer and that way you can adjust opacity or rotate as needed. Hope that helps--
