Photoshop Additions

Would you like to create amazing star trails and cloud effects with a few clicks?

We thought so. Hundreds of hours of experimentation and testing have been poured into this singularly handy addition to Photoshop. This action supports any version of Photoshop from CS3 to CS6 and even CC on Mac or PC to create images like these and includes special effects like comets, midgets and streaks.  NOTE: Versions of Photoshop prior to CS2, Photoshop Elements and Photoshop Lightroom are NOT supported.

With Photoshop you have awesome incredible power to aid your creation. And with the action you can combine, RAW, TIFF, JPG, GIF, PNG… anything that Photoshop is able to open.

Not only does this Advanced Stacking action smush your photos together in interesting ways, but it can also be used to create eye-popping timelapse effects. Like this, and this and this. If you have Photoshop CS6 or an extended version of Photoshop you can create a timelapse without exiting the program. Or you can use one of many methods to take your fancy images to create a timelapse.

What Our Customers Say about our Actions

I came across this while searching for an easier way to run this in CS5. It worked fantastically.
~ Jeff J.

~ emma

I love the action and am recommending it to others.
~ Steve J.

Just a quick note to thank you for an amazing ATN routine! Took my first ever star trail images at the Grand Canyon and between the Stacker Checklist and your Photoshop stacker action, everything went perfectly! I was even able to use the action from within Photoshop CS3, and it worked exactly the as in CS5.
~ Christopher H.

It worked the first time with RAW files – no need to convert it to JPG … huge time saver
Instruction must be good … i followed & was able to pull it off the first time. never happen before with other web-posted-photoshop instructions so either i am getting smarter or your instruction is plain & simple.
~ Steve
