Adding a Sparkle to someones Eyes!

I have looked everywhere to find out how to do this but my detective skills appear to be as inadequate as my PSE skill.
Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Ron

Maybe this link is of some use.
Or maybe this helps also. (You have to scroll down a bit).
Good luck.

Sorry Hans they are great for brightening or highlighting dull eyes, but I just wanted to add a real cheesey Starstruck Type sparkle to some things I have.
Thanks they are great links.

Hi Ron ...

Sounds like you want to add a catchlight

Here is a link to a tutorial:

http://www.photokaboom.com/photograp...ghts_steps.htm

but if you want to add those cheese starlights then just use a flare brush on a new layer

Wendy

Hi Ron,

See if these brushes will give you the kind of sparkle you are looking for.

Thanks Guys:

Frank, I went to the PET site and did a search using almost your words and got nothing, I checked out your link and found some stuff for Photoshop but wasn't sure if it applied to PSE! Brushes still confuse me LOL.

Wendy, Hello saviour lady I am scared of Brushes and Actions and all that stuff you are so good at, but will try the tut. Question why can't sparkles be sparkles instead of catchlight this makes searching hard for us dumbos.

Sepiana, the link is exactly what I want, but I am brush shy, what do I do to get them please.

Question three, does PSE7 have a starlight 70 brush like mentioned in one of Frank's mentioned tuts?

Non Scrapper Ron.

Hi Ron,

Click on the yellow download button. In the next window you will be asked to sign in. If you already have an account with Adobe, use the same ID (e-mail) and password. If you donít have an account, just create one. Then the download will begin. When asked if you want to open or save the file, choose Save. Next navigate to where you saved the brush file and then copy and paste it here:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements x.x\Presets\Brushes

When you open PSE and bring up the Brush drop-down list, you will see the brush you have just installed.

If you donít want to install the brush in PSE, you can just load the brush whenever you need to use it. Here are Dianaís instructions how to do so.

For the future, almost all photoshop tutorials can be done in PSE.
