Re: how to change colors and create flares?

1) This may be a simple cross-processing action - you can find these using your search engine. Alternately add a curves layer enter the individual colours (red,green,blue) and play with the curves.
2) On a separate layer using the ellipse tool create a circle - fill with colour of choice, add gausian blur to desired effect - Use move tool to reposition and size - repeat as often as you like
Eh voila.

I just downloaded a brush to do those flares. Search Bokeh you will find information about it.
There are actions for the color/softness, I've seen it on flickr, look here
Hope that helps
