Newbie Starburst Filter action/script... please help

I've been wondering, for a while now, if there was a script or action what would find all of the specular highlights in an image and stamp a 'X' shaped brush onto them, mainly to re-create the starburst filter that photographers use.

Does anyone know of any type of script like this, I'm really desperate.

Thanks for the link to the brushes

I'm still after an automated process which finds all of the specular highlights in the image such as the center of a candle flame, fairy light bulb ect.. and stamps a star to mimic a starburst filter on the camera.

Definitely not doable with an action.

A script could be programmed to examine an image pixel by pixel (or by groups of pixels, i.e., 3x3 [or whatever size]) looking for a specified minimum brightness range. The programming challenge would be restricting the "star stamp" to only one location within a given area. i.e., the center of a flame, that would be comprised of hunderds of pixels having very similar hue and brightness values.

Suggest you post your question at http://www.ps-scripts.com, where several highly qualified scripting jocks hang out. If this is doable, one of those dudes would no doubt jump at the chance of crafting such a script.

There's a plugin that can achieve these effects: Xero Quasar

Available here:

Thanks guys, downloaded the quaisor plugin but I'm afraid that is wasn't very controllable, the stars looked really fake, great for 3D images, not for photographs.

I'll head on over to that forum and see if they can help, in theory the script sounds do-able but in reality, probally not
