    Does anyone know how to create the starfield background on this site in photoshop? The link to the picture I am referring to is: http://www.ifans.com/background.jpg

    Thanks

    EDIT: Oops, can a Super Mod move this too the graphic design section? Sorry, didn't see it

    it is actually created from a photo of a nebula.

    start by finding a suitable image (search "nebula" on google image search).

    next, apply a large amount of blur.

    finally, use the color picker to get the color of "space" and use the brush with 0% hardness to clean the image up

    There are some space/nebula brushes if you search http://deviantart.com. But it wouldn't be that hard to simply paint your own space scene in PhotoShop. Just create a brush with some random sizing and scattering for the stars. Then create a cloudy brush for the purple and blues.
